My father told me that in the olden days - he was born in 1891 - oyster boats used to pull in to the pier near the Levis ferry.

Letter From Canadian Soldier in Afghanistan

I've really enjoyed being able to stay up to date with what's going on at home while I've been here in Afghanistan, and for the chance to give a different view to readers about what life here is like. Getting my paper in the mail was a real morale booster. Thanks again for everything.
