….In Praise of Walking Thomas A. Clarke
Ten days ago, my sister and I drove to Twillingate and did some twacking (the top meaning😊) before joining our cousin at R & J Restaurant for lunch. All three of us enjoy the outdoors and hiking so the conversation led to hiking in the Twillingate area. Our cousin lives there and asked if we had ever done the hike in Little Harbour. No we hadn’t , but of course now we have!
Lower Little Harbour where at one time people lived year around, did they resettle up the trail to Little Harbour;)?
I have always liked the word mosey, it conjures up visions of quietly taking your time, of feeling warm and centered. We discussed the spelling of this “Mozy Inn” , because I had never seen it written. Someone would add an ‘e’, someone would have used ‘s’ instead of ‘z’, etc., but we all agreed that it was a lovely inviting spot. Interestingly enough I did see it written a few days later in Michael Winter’s book Into the Blizzzard…………mosey.
Sugg…an interesting surname for Newfoundland I thought
It was a brilliant, bitterly cold day.
The Natural Arch .
An unexpected, invigorating hike. Thank you Debra.
