Finally Home......

The wind continued to whip around us, but the driving rain stopped long enough to walk the half mile or so back to the "Welcome to Newfoundland" sign. I looked down on her face and Arayo gave me a gentle steady gaze as I told her this amazingly beautiful and mysterious place is where she belongs. This is for her. The land is spotted with lakes, backed by rugged views of oceans and all is protected by rolling hills and mountains.

Throughout this, the grasses that cover the land are filled with wild flowers of purples, yellows and white. I've been here but an hour and this stunning land has already captured my soul.

I think Arayo understands and feels it is going to be special for her as well.
