Time to leave the wild garden of the Blue Charm Inn and the salmon waters of Ragged Harbour River and New Pond.  Fall is coming and we are heading down south to Gaultois on Long Island to enjoy the autumnal tidings until Thanksgiving. And we feel gratitude to have had this wonderful opportunity to live in the Newfoundland wilderness with time to rest and reflect. Thank you to our many Newfoundland friends who help to make this retreat possible for us. The magic never fades. Nettie & Fran

Creeping Snowberries, also known as Indian Tea Berry or Mana Tea – tastes like peppermint sweets…leaves can be steeped into a tea very good for stomach – grows profusely around the cabin in late summer/early autumn
