|I dragged the jet-lagged Dave Bonta|
to meet penpal-and-novelist
Clare Dudman at Castell Powis.
Sunny. Lots of glare. Not Welshy weather...
except for the chilliness in the air.
|Correspondents meet in the flesh, hurrah!|
Lovely, that feeling of already
knowing and being known...
|Clare treated me and Dave to a lovely lunch |
at Lady Somebody or Other's Tea Shop at Castell Powis.
Lady Hyacinth? Lady Heliotrope? Lady Bluebell?
With my luck, it was Lady Forget-me-not.
Lovely. What great travels you've had!ReplyDelete
Oh, I forgot that I had this scheduled to go up automatically! Yes, it was a lovely day in Welshpool...
I am on to make reservations for a poetry conference, so I'll be off again soon.
Hats off to Clare, to trans-oceanic friendship, to both of you for dragging Dave to a castle tea party, and to that wisteria!ReplyDelete
He definitely added to the entertainment of the day. Especially when he was in the shrubbery...
Yes, here's to friends near and far, never met and met!
THANK YOU Marly! Sorry about the shouting, but it's a long way over the Atlantic! I'm so delighted we met at last. It was a great day. I very much enjoyed meeting you both.ReplyDelete
Yes, it is a mighty long way, but one that we all hope that you will traverse, sooner or later.ReplyDelete
Congratulations, 0 Indefatiable One!
Indeed I shall, I expect and hope - one day!ReplyDelete
And thanks to you too, Beth.
I am going to have to pop in on Clare's site and give her a visit. That castle real beautiful and shapely. I love how you described it.ReplyDelete
I like how you are posting your pics in the boxes.
Clare is fun to visit. She roars through an awful lot of books and posts about most of them.
Oh, good--I've just been fooling around with some new Blogger features. It's more like an album that way.
Please insert a "g" in "Indefatiable." That sounds like a diet problem.
