Clara Oliver

Clara Oliver, in many ways, is your typical healthy 86-year-old woman.  But in other ways,she's anything but typical.

Clara grew up in the heart of St. John's downtown west end.  But when she was a teenager, her family moved just outside the city. To the country.  Where Clara was introduced to outhouses, mosquitoes...and her future husband, David.  The man who would instill his love of the country on her.

Now, at 86, Clara regulary goes trouting in summer...ice fishing and rabbit catching in winter.  She makes her annual trip to her son and daughter-in-law's farm every February...where she scratches her outdoors itch.  This year, Land and Sea went with her.
