A Sunday of Travellers

The day started with a visit for coffee of Mr and Mrs Mein from Australia who were in the district to unveil a plaque on the family mausoleum in Canonbie. They kindly brought us a bottle of wine to thank us for posting some photographs from our website to them for their family history.

The day was marked by some fiercely windy conditions and we were seriously worried about damage to the garden, trees and even buildings but in the end we came through pretty well unscathed bar the odd twig here and there.

In the late afternoon Mrs Tootlepedal and I set off for Carlisle and a quick practice before heading off to Appleby for a second concert with the Brampton Chamber Choir this time with Jenny, our fourth member. The concert went not badly and we left Appleby to be greeted by a glorious sunset which rounded the day off pretty well.
