Grandbabies, Reading and Crossing The Tamar

04 Mar

1    We played with T  in the morning and collected J from school, a rare treat – for all of us, before catching the train home.

2   This book is a wonderful read with Harold, on his Unlikely Pilgrimage, noticing all the beautiful things around him. If you haven’t yet read it, do!  It is tender and touching, funny and sad and is full of life’s lessons………

Reading this took me two train journeys

3   The journey home was, as always, lovely especially riding into the sunset, here reflecting in the Tamar as we cross into Cornwall.

      I’m telling everyone about it! It has so much to teach us in a very well told story and without any sense of preaching. 🙂

      Indeed it is – and quite a quick read too as it is hard to put down! 🙂

    I’ll have to see if I can find the book at the library. The cover certainly grabs your attention.

    I just loved that book too! and the view from Brunel’s Bridge, altho I usually don’t see it in that gorgeous light.
