Together Again, Nostalgia and Poems

13 Jul

1    We all met in the car park at Perranporth – it was eight years since I had seen my sister-in-law and immediately it felt like yesterday!

Delight in being together again

2   After playing on Perranporth beach (the rain stopped as P&V arrived) and Cornish  pasties for lunch, we did a nostalgic drive to see places from our childhood. The beautiful cottage in Penwartha was one of our homes.We remembered the apple orchard, the daffodils, the slow-worms my older brother collected and being late for school despite the school being two minutes away!

We used to live here when we were little

3   We then went into Truro to see the beautiful Cathedral and for old times’ sake as we lived in the city for many years. Lemon Quay was full of lovely poems, taped to trees and lamp-posts and to a bicycle. I particularly liked this one

      There were poems all over the place, on lampposts, on trees , on bollards and on the bikes. It was surreal and delightful 🙂

    A trip down memory lane always
    truly inspires us doesn’t it MBT? 🙂

    I can see from your first photograph
    that this reunion is something to be
    very happy about 🙂 🙂

    Yes indeed, it is all
    so very good MBT 🙂 🙂

    ‘Lemon Quay’ – what a delicious name! Oh, I so much love Cornish pasties. I might even buy some when I next go shopping. They can be a meal in themselves.

    How lovely it ‘felt like yesterday’ when you saw each other again. It sounds you had a brilliant day 🙂

    There’s nothing like a trip down memory lane. I think memories are the very roots of our human story, especially our individual stories.I’m sure your time together is special. Something rather beautiful about the way that place Lemon Quay is filled with poems.
