      Happy Canada Day to you too, Sally. Newfoundland is famous now, thanks to the marvelous show, Come From Away! And the show doesn’t show anything about the amazing icebergs that float down the coast. 🙂

      • Hi Jane ! Yes, this is a fabulous place. We are waiting for the jumping majestic whales now. But the best part of our province is the fabulous, friendly Newfoundlanders. 🤗

        • Jane Fritz says:

          You’ve got that right. In what I like to think is a very friendly country, and speaking as someone from the friendly Maritimes, Newfoundlanders stand out for their friendliness. I have to tell everyone who’s seen Come From Away that the extreme friendliness portrayed in it is REAL!!

        • Yes, for sure. We call everyone ” my love, my dear, my darling, or my duckie” .😄
