Low Tide, A Swan and A Poster

02 Jul

My cousin and his wife, who live in Australia, are on a European tour and today came to visit us so off we took them down to the beautiful Pandora Inn in Restronguet,  for lunch. We were fascinated by the behaviour of the eighteen swans who left the water one by one in a long line, sploshing up the muddy beach to drink from some running water. Some time later, they all went back again.

They are much more elegant on the water!

On the way home, we stopped off to show D&T the beautiful Quaker Meeting House at Come To Good.  This poster echoed some of our conversation.

The following is an old photo and rather small but gives you an idea of the beautiful old building, built in 1710.

      Yes, it was fun. We were christened together many years ago by our Grandpa, the Vicar in the village where I was born. D is just two weeks older than me. We met for the first time last year! 🙂

        That’s right. I remember you sharing that last year . . . but wouldn’t have remembered that this was that cousin. 😀
