I did live in Marystown from the Summer of 1973 through Spring of 1974 and the months were jam-packed with adventure and Marystown recounts some of these activities and is one of the first short stories that I put down. I hope I have captured the natural wonder and the incredible beauty of this bit of Newfoundland.
I would like to add one detail of this period that I did not include in the story but has been with me all the years since. Tim Horton. Defensemen for the Buffalo Sabres died in a car crash one night in February…I had watched the game on TV…played in Toronto versus the Maple Leafs. He was on his way home.
