A poignant day today in many ways.  To begin with, at lunchtime there was a ceremony in the churchyard in memory of Dad. He was a churchwarden there for a while and was instrumental in the unveiling ceremony of a new sculpture in the Peace Garden ...

Today was a puttery day around Conway.  Big shocker when we went to book our 2nd night at the campground and the price had gone up 7 pounds (about $34 for the night as opposed to $20).  Seems that Fri/Sat/Sun are their ‘peak’ times, ...
