Changing Our View


[Lorraine says:] Yeaaahhhh! We FINALLY have housing. We were assigned a unit, had a chance to take a look at it today, and did all the paperwork. By afternoon, the moving company had picked up all our stuff that had been sitting in airport cargo for the past 3 1/2 weeks, and delivered it to the new pad.

So, here is the view we are leaving. This was our view for almost a month, looking northeast from the Frobisher Inn. We'll be able to see the same view from our apartment, but from a different angle. We got an apartment in Paunna Place, which is a three storey 14-unit apt building right downtown next to the post office. (We'll post more info later). It is a perfect location: 3 blocks to work, and 2 blocks from the Northern Store, making it perfect for walking even in -30 below.

Which, by the way, it was today: -31 with the windchill. Luckily, none of our stuff seemed to freeze too hard while being held in cargo, so everything seems in pretty good shape (other than a few small damages). The first thing we unpacked were the boxes of all those amazing woolen things that Ella made us, and the bags and bags and bags of dehydrated food she made for us. Tomorrow night, for the first time in about 2 months, we'll be able to have a proper sit down supper we've cooked ourselves....

That is wonderful news. So pleased that your belongings arrived in good shape.

We did practice on Monday but Bruce and George did not make it they had to turn back due to the weather!!!

Hoping they will be able to make Thursday for the Empress Gardens but feel that we could just about get by with the four of us for an hour but I am sure they will be there. We miss you John.

Wow!!! I'm so happy for you!
Finally a real place to live and make your own. My friend lives in that building, and it looks really nice, his apartment has sloped ceilings, which give it such a neat look.

Hi Folks: You are not missing any nice weather here in Caygeon..Very Breezy with a wind chill of -20, and storm warnings for the week-end, but at least we have a cozy bookstore open. The fact we have no customers due to the weather ( I hope ) shouldn't worry me much. I will send some pictures as soon as I learn how. Love the pictures and the updates and hope all is well. Not much changing here, miss you, and talk soon. Pete
