Big thank you to all those that work so hard in organizing all the little gifts and those that help out on the day.
In a way there would have been many mixed emotions yesterday. The Nain Huskies won the schools provincial volley ball tournament, the Makkovik girls won their provincial tournament as well. Unfortunately weather prevented them from getting home yesterday.
The flip side is along with a couple of regular attendee seniors who are out in hospital receiving treatment a long time fisher and hunter of the old school passed away this weekend.
The ways of relying on the land for subsistence is sure passing by quickly (some might say gone for good), one does not realize how quickly until someone leaves for whatever awaits them in the ever-after.
Meanwhile out on the water: The mv Astron left Lewisport in another attempt to deliver freight to the coast. She left Saturday with an ETA Makkovik 6am today.
Not so fast says the sea spirits, this is the north Atlantic in December. So the Astron is storm bound in Cartwright.
Must be very stressful for people who have freight on the boat and still at the dock awaiting shipment. Most of the world has moved on and joined the 21st century. We here on the Labrador coast are regressing (thanks to the provincial government) at a fast pace back to the 1970s or earlier.
