Hi From Newfoundland

July 12th, 2008 by Walt "The Skipper" Jones

We awoke at sunrise in Ingonish and said goodbye to John. The sunrise was fabulous and the day was gorgeous for a crossing; virtually no wind at all and in fact sometimes the sea was like glass. After 11.5 hours we pulled into the Government dock at Codroy, Newfoundland. The end of the wharf had silted in so I almost ran aground. Immediately we met Dean on the dock and shortly thereafter his fishing buddies. His wife, Carol Ann drove us to the local lighthouse and then to a restaurant for dinner. Kip had an interesting dish called fish cakes which was a combination of mash potatoes and cod – very good. We presented them with a pound of Peets. They will be shocked as they are used to instant. We are impressed by the beauty of this island and we haven’t yet seen much. Once again the people are warm and friendly.

    Praise GOD for a smooth journey across the open water as well as all the systems on your boat working smoothly! What a wonderful adventure you are on visit such a relatively unexplored part of God’s creation.

    To GOD be all the glory!

    Only Norma and our Lord could have painted that sunset/rise.

    Somehow I can visualize Gerry as a boat, but not as a figurehead.

    May good fortune be your companion, Carlos
