Have you heard the wind whistling and seen the loon gliding on it? Have you heard the waves lapping and seen the loon playing in the surf? Have you heard the crackle of the bonfires and seen the dreams of the loon in the flames? Have you heard the grass growing in the earth and seen the loon build his home in it's soft embrace? Then you have seen my friend Ocean's Edge... yep she's a LOON.

Born in Cape Breton, 25 years in the GTA (yes that's Greater Toronto Area), 6 years in Manitoba, living in Newfoundland, married to an Aussie - don't bother trying to figure out the accent it'll only hurt your brain.

Bows... thank you thank you thank you...

Hi Oceans Edge.

I have posted to these forums from Newfoundland*, but I don't think we've had anyone who actually lives there before.

That accent really would hurt my brain - but I'm guessing it sounds just ever so slightly Celtic.

* I live in England not far from London and my sister lives in Vancouver (which is where I'm originally from), so Newfoundland was an obvious choice of location for a vacation together!

Welcome Oceans Edge :-)

I thought you were going to be a New Zealander when I saw the thread-header, so I am now suffering from geographic confusion.

the header is a long old pun between a friend of mine and myself - people generally end up shortening Ocean's Edge to OE ...

'aloha oe' translated from the Hawaiian is 'hello (or goodbye) with affection/love' ... (love the fluidity of the Hawaiian language)
