The Ladies of Barrhead, Marilyn, Roberta, JoAnn, Maria, Phyllis and Betty thoroughly enjoyed their daily painting workshops which offered them a different inspirational landscape each day. They found time during their week with us to enjoy site seeing and just soaked up as much culture and hospitality that they could. They enjoyed icebergs and boat tours and a special treat of visiting the old general store in Rattling Brook which was featured on the show Land and Sea in October this year. At the store they mingled with the locals and enjoyed trying on old hats and hand made mittens.
There was as special treat in store for them on their last night here...traditional home cooked jigs dinner followed by Newfoundland entertainment which consisted of funny skits put on by the neighbors, accordian music by a local musician and of course a screechin in ceremony. After which they were presented with gifts and souvenirs to take back with them including a CD with all the pictures taken of them while they were here. We thoroughly enjoyed our time getting to know the ladies and there was even time to socialize in the evenings whether it be during before dinner drinks or around a fire outside.
We wish the girls the best of luck in their art show in December and hope they will come back again some day.
