Woody Point, NL: Dear Susan

Dear Susan,

We don't know what prompted you to offer us your barn loft for the night on that ferry ride from Norris Point to Woody Point, but we are sure glad you did. We almost missed the boat -- we were sitting on the dock soaking in the sun, and the captain broke our meditative state to make sure we wanted to go for the ride. And you were on our boat, and took sympathy on us, and led us down the road on the other side to your little paradise. The feminine spirits took good care of us.

Thanks for the capelin, the warm shower, the tea, and for sharing your respect and knowledge of your world. The best of Newfoundland, for us, was symbolized by your generosity.

We hope our paths will cross again,

Love,

John and Doris
