Saltash, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Ann Glanville

The Suitcase Singers went by train all the way to Saltash Regatta & Waterside Festival 2019 today to sing in the glorious sunshine, the highlight of the day being singing ‘Ann Glanville’ around her statue. It was a brilliant day out, singing our hearts out and interestingly,  being underneath the Brunel Bridge for a change!

Train Journey, Home from Senegal and a Simple Supper

1    The train journey through English countryside:  The Somerset Levels, The White Horse, springy little  lambs, a Thelwell pony, flowers-in-a-boat on the station platform at Saltash, and above all, the vibrant green of the fields.

2   Coming home, beautiful bluebells and primroses in the front garden and coming into our house.

3  A very simple and very tasty supper of two poached eggs on toast!

and I’ll start writing about the beautiful things of Senegal tomorrow.
