When I was a child, it was commonplace for our parents to tell us that if we dug a hole in the back yard and just kept going we would come out in China! But I'm here to tell you that from south-eastern Australia that's just not true....our nearest landfall on the far side of the world is Newfoundland. And yet, oddly enough, we have good friends in Trepassey. It sure makes 'catching up' somewhat of an odyssey, but we'll happily do it as often as we can. Perhaps it's a shared interest in our Celtic history and music or the hardy and resilient nature of our people, raised in such isolated locations, but we always feel welcomed, included and right at home. We'll be back in July for a wedding.......and won't that be a shindig!
