How to create a file system reference to an iCloud Note

My daughter wanted us to use a shared Apple Note for trip planning. That's fine, but I wanted a way to reference it from the macOS folder that held other trip documents.

This worked:
  1. Open Safari and view the specific Note.
  2. Drag the URL ref to desktop creating a .webloc file, name it as desired
  3. Store .webloc file in folder
Funny bit: If you double-click the .webloc file it doesn't open Safari. It opens Mojave with the specific Note selected and contents displayed.

This is the actual webloc content (I tweaked the GUID just in case it allows global access):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
