I have just spent 19 days here with lots of sun and warmth. I am flying back to the UK with a suntan, highly unusual from this part of the world. I stayed with 3 different sets of friends; Cathi and Ches from Goose Bay Labrador; Denise and Peggy; and my old friend Barb. Denise gives the most wonderful massage treatments and Peggy has written a song which is brilliant. I hope to push her to get it recorded. Barb was the one that got me settled in my summer home in Harbor Grace number a years ago. She is a very special lady with a massive heart. She now has Fred (a lovely man) in her life. I am just delighted!
I was very fortunate to stay with 3 very good cooks; superb food and fun times! Must have seen over 20 whales all over the Island. They seem to enjoy the sunshine too.
I was very busy trying to figure out next steps in my life. Do I stay put in UK countryside and use as base? Do I give that up and just travel? (Maybe a freighter), plus Athens and India are still in the cards! I want to go to Toronto soon to see my grandkids and my Canadian family! Portugal is also calling about special retreat centre I have been asked to see.
I have been coming to Newfoundland for 18 years, with all of its beauty and weather harshness. The people are very unique, what you see is what you get, which I love.
I will keep you posted!
In 4 days off to Rome to meet grandkids Megan and Ben for a visit!
