Central Morning Giant Squid on Tape Jan 11, 2013 | 5:01Glover's Harbour is famous for just one thing...its giant squid.
And we mean giant.
Back in 1878, a 55 foot squid was captured in the waters off the tiny community.
A replica of the massive creature and an interpretation centre in Glover's Harbour attract hundreds of visitors each year.
Now, a Japanese film crew and a team of scientists have captured the world's first live video of a giant squid in its natural environment.
But their squid is just ten feet long...
Meagre compared to Glover's Harbour's giant squid...but exciting none the less.
Lester Keddie is Treasurer of the Local Service District in Glover's Harbour.

And for artist Charmaine Wheatley,

But her mother is from Happy Adventure.
And she's currently living in Glovertown - which is where our Jessica Doria-Brown reached her.

Central Morning Artist Jean Claude Roy Sep 26, 2012 | 8:28French artist Jean Claude Roy first came to Newfoundland more than 40 years ago.
He instantly fell in love with the place, and the island's communities became a lifelong art project for him.
Now, he's finally published his book, featuring an original painting of every single community on the island.
The book is called "Fluctuat Nec Mergitur," a Latin phrase meaning "He who rises with the wave is not swallowed by it."
He says that's what Newfoundland means to him.
