Paddington Bear, Night Sleeper and Truro Cathedral

19 Oct

Someone had left a jar of marmalade for Paddington Bear at the station!

Marmalade left for Paddington Bear

We were able to board the sleeper train at 10.30pm  and it set off at 11.45.  I was well asleep by then and had a surprisingly smooth ride and a good sleep. Breakfast of a bacon sandwich, juice and tea was delivered at 6.45am!

I used to love coming into Truro station after a term at college. Two tunnels and then the Cathedral and my Dad would be waiting on the platform, grinning from ear to ear, waiting to take me to the sea, usually Perranporth,  even before we went home. Here is the Cathedral from the train at just after 7am. However pleasing the holiday, it is always good to come home.

    Love the story of your return to Truro after a term at school. Can just picture your dad at the station and your joy at seeing him. Did you know that Jeremy Visick is in print again and available on Amazon?

      We didn’t know and will look it up and tell family and friends who have been asking where to get copies. I need a new lending copy myself!
      I could always spot Dad easily of course in the crowd and would wave madly from the open window! Lovely memories! 🙂

    I saw Kate Middleton dancing with Paddington Bear on the news this week ~> he was surprisingly nimble on his feet!

      It must be all the marmalade energy that gave him nimble feet! 🙂
