We were blown away by the graciousness and hospitality shown to us by Ian and Rebecca Stone. The most important thing for us was in getting a feel for what life is like rather than just having them take us on a show and tell tour. Not only did we get fantastic scenery and wonderful day hikes but we heard music, went to a play, experienced the Woody Point Writer's Festival, made glass art, heard about the life of a cod fishermen and so much more. For us being from such a large, congested megalopolis like Los Angeles it was an exceptional treat. We truly appreciate it and loved the entire trip. I miss the friendliness of the people in Newfoundland.
