East Coast Tour - Day 15

Family day!

One of the best things about being in Newfoundland is being with my family. We see each other so rarely that when we get together, we really try to make the most of it.

Gerald and I enjoyed a relaxing morning of writing songs. As Gerald played a guitar riff, I started to hear a lyric. Of course, by the time he finished working out his guitar part, the lyric no longer fit the melody. No problem - now we have the start of 2 new songs!

The afternoon and evening were dedicated to feasting, laughing, telling stories, and just loving every minute. We went out to my cousin's house where we enjoyed fresh mussels, BBQ chicken, fresh cod, salads, and potatoes that were literally dug from the garden and dumped in the pot. The desserts smothered the table, and the drinks were chilled with none other than million-year-old iceberg ice!

Million-year-old iceberg ice!!

We ended the night with a campfire, complete with weiners and marshmallows. Our trip has been great, but with all the driving and travelling, it's great to just sit in one place for a while...
