Peter thrived in his quiet world where he could be on his own and create wooden masterpieces. It didn’t matter that he was on his own. If he needed company he could visit the family or go out. But he definitely wasn’t lonely.
Sandy lived on her remote island and manned a lighthouse. Being in the middle of nowhere suited her down to the ground. As a meteorologist she combined her daily duties with the duties of a lighthouse keeper. Keeping the lights burning bright and the vessels out of harms way
For both Peter and Sandy, alone definitely didn’t mean lonely.
