Surprise journey

Vodpod videos no longer available.

We left the hotel this morning planning to visit local churches and then Quidi Vidi. On our way to exploring an old house we’d glanced at yesterday, we stopped a lady getting into a car to ask about the place up the road. She was so sweet, and gave us all the information she knew about it, then asked what we were doing in the area. We told her who we were and how we’d gotten here, and then turned to go on our way.  A few steps down the road, she called us back.The two older couples in the car asked if we’d like to go on a boat trip. At first we declined, but they were so gracious and insistent, we went against form and said yes.  So, we ended up taking an amazing trip around Conception Bay with our Captain Norville, his wonderful lady Andrea , his sister Peg, her husband Jim and Norville’s son Fred.

Norville took us through Clarke’s beach to see the big fishing boats, then we stopped at Brigus beach for a treat of wild blueberry ice cream at the little cafe in town. Back to their private harbour at Seal Cove before they drove us back, even dropping us right at the front door of our hotel.

I spent the entire day in bemused awe at these great people who comfortably took us in and treated us as family. Just an amazing and unreal experience.
