Jonny Pippy is a legendary fixture in the ‘cove’ — a truly unique Newfoundland character. He’s an old man (nobody really knows how old) and lives alone in a bare bones house. His skin is weathered and worn like a fisherman’s and he’s missing nearly all of his teeth, but he is still lean, spritely and energetic. At dawn he rides his bike to a clearing that overlooks the bay and gets lost in his own thoughts looking at the sea. After chatting with neighbours or tourists and darting around doing whatever it is he does in town, he rides himself back up the hill into the sunset.
