This house I started in 2004, now renting to help pay for it, but plan to build tourist cabins. I call my house Emmashill, named for my aunt, Emma Tapper, a well-known fly fisher, who worked with Ella Manuel and Lee Wolfe in Lomond many years ago - she was a great outdoorswooman and the first licensed female guide in Newfoundland.
This is a very beautiful, peaceful place, most mornings in the summer season you can watch minke whales feeding in the waters just out from the house, while feeding the crows and listening to songbirds.
I live in Woody Point and St. John's. I am a harpist, and I play harp at the Seaside Restaurant in Trout River - great food and great music! I also play some evenings in Woody Point, and I teach at a traditional music camp in Lomond (also in the park) in August - see www.soundbone.ca - a 1-week all-ages camp with some of Newfoundland's best know players of traditional music... song, dance - we've got it.
