In the afternoon of my third annual visit to Bedford South School, I made bookings to fly to Gander in Newfoundland in May.
I’d heard via my website from a teacher in Gambo (to the east of Gander, the nearest airport), whose students have been reading “The Nine Lives of Travis Keating” and “The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy“; she said how neat it would be if I could visit.
Now that my son and his family don’t live in Newfoundland any more, I miss my twice-annual trips to “The Rock“. The teacher is from Fogo Island, a place I’ve often wanted to go. And maybe spring is in the air!
Anyway, after a flurry of emails, I’m going to Gambo and Fogo Island, and I’m very excited about it.
