A Quest for the Sea

January 22nd, 2014 at 02:00 am

This was a great documentary on free Hulu.

It's about how 10 modern-day Newfoundlanders try to live the lives of their ancestors in Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. Back in the 30s, there many bustling little communities along the coastline as they made a living off the sea, fishing for cod until the fishing industry collapsed and everyone left for an easier way of life.

It was very interesting, just 4 episodes. There was the 14-year-old girl who was always somewhat petulant and not really embracing a phone-free life. I personally was amazed by the vitality and energy of a 75-year-old grandmother who held her own with the others doing a lot of hard labor for 62 days.
