“When an opportunity opens to nourish your soul, I encourage you to go for it. To be able to share this journey with your daughter is a mother’s dream. To be able to share this with strangers who are now family… the gift of love and time for meaningful connections. Everything I thought I was, I am now so much more. All because of the power of water and nature. Thank you Newfoundland, and thank you dear Bruce”.
Heather and Bella Bullock, Bay of Exploits, Newfoundland
