Louise visits the Coast of Bays and Blue Charm Inn

Our sister Louise traveled from Australia to visit us in Newfoundland Canada. What a joy to share this wonderland.  The weather turned fine as we took trips via ferry, boat and car. We saw whales, seals, bald eagles, moose, beaver and even a black bear. We had picnics, BBQ, brunches and card nights with big belly laughs, all  with the lovely people of Gaultois. Louise finished her stay with some quiet days at the cabin on New Pond watching the Atlantic Salmon leap and turn on their way up the Ragged Harbour River. It was a precious time. Good luck in New York Louise – wow what a contrast!
