What began as an impulsive bid (by Doug) on a fishing trip to Igloo Lake Lodge at the Kids Eat Smart Gala, has culminated in a trip of a lifetime!
We have visited friends in Goose Bay enroute, marvelled at the expanse and beauty of the Big Land while enjoying a thrilling flight in the float plane and shared the excitement of Nanette catching her first beautiful 5.5 pound Brookie (or was it larger….8lbs??).
Nanette received her first fly fishing lessons from our knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic guide, Deon, and we enjoyed wonderful commaderie with our fellow lodge mates and fisher persons while gathered around the dining table feasting on delicious homemade meals expertly prepared by Roseann morning, noon & night.
We were regaled each evening with fishing stories and other outdoor adventure tales from the past peppered with laughter, good humour and lies.
While we will miss hunkering down for the night in our lovely rustic beds made cozy by handmade quilts embellished with moose and fish, it was satisfying to know that as we savour our memories of our trip to Igloo Lake Lodge, countless breakfasts will be enjoyed
by school age children through out Newfoundland & Labrador.
