Iceberg At Last!
Well we have traveled 1200 kms on the island of Newfoundland and didn’t see a single moose but on our way back from ‘up island’ we were driving along the northern coastline from Musgrave Harbour when we saw a white lump in the distance – could it be an iceberg? what else could it be? So excited we were, it was like our own private iceberg coming to say farewell……..can you see it in the distance? Must be huge close up……
We took our time meandering back through every nook and cranny on our way to the thriving metropolis of St John’s (approx pop. 250,000) so many coves, so little time……
The clouds parted and we had some sunshine which made the water a brilliant blue – water water everywhere and lots and lots to drink!
Getting ready to say last farewells to our new found families on Newfoundland before flying to Toronto to catch train (free Wi Fi on train so many blogs to come…) to the Rockies…ah what a life …..
And what a joy to speak to our families on Skype this morning – Lizzie, Andrew, Lucius, Jaxon, Erin and Mirakye – we miss you all! Not even halfway through our 5 week trip and it feels like months……..
We’ll end this post with a beautiful poem penned by our Newfie buddy, our new bro, Craig – a real poet of the heart:
Today I’ve painted a picture
Of the world’s most beautiful face……
In it are all your features
Nurtured by time and grace….
Those tiny lines of character
Added for just the perfect look….
Shows all of God’s great patience
And the extra time he took…..
No flaws of imperfection
A master with the brush….
The perfect cheeks for laughter
And colour when they’re flush…..
I painted from no photo
Or drawing to help me start….
For darling I’ve always kept this picture
Safe within my heart……………..
