I live across the Hudson River from Manhattan.
It's a place far removed from my hometown
in Nova Scotia.

I want to share with all of you my Canadian
Province of Nova Scotia.


This is my home province of Nova Scotia in Canada
The song is sung by a woman from Nova Scotia who became quite famous. She
sang all over the world. The pictures are from all of parts of Nova Scotia.
Halifax is in there as well as many pictures of Cape Britain Island,
which is one of the prettiest places you could ever visit

This next one is the song that launched her career.
It's about the coal miners. Singing with her is a choir of coal miners.

That is my home. I miss it. One day I will take
my wife there to see it. I watched these two
videos tonight and tears formed in my eyes.
Ginny has not met my Mum yet. We've been married
almost 4 years, and they've only talked on the phone.

Hopefully, they'll meet one day.
Ginny has told me, if something were to happen to
me, she will make sure she goes to Canada to
meet my Mum. I know they will get along very well.
