Woody Island

This weekend I visited Woody Island resort with all of the running girls. There were 8 of us in total. Woody Island is a resettled community which is a 2 hour drive and then a 40 minute boat ride from St. John's. It was resettled in 1968 and all the houses were floated across the bay which would have been a pretty neat thing to seem I'm sure. Now there are only summer homes there along with the Woody Island resort. We got there early Saturday morning and left after lunch on today.

The food was great. We had peasoup and toutons for lunch yesterday and last night for supper we had pan fried cod and vegetables. For lunch today we had a boil up on the beach with homemade soup and sandwiches. I'll be full for the next week for sure.

We hiked across the island and visited the foundations of where the church and school used to be. We also visited the two old graveyards which is another thing I enjoy doing. Last night was a Newfoundland kitchen party with guitars and accordians and the mummers visited as well. It was a wonderful evening and we all had a great time. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.
