This morning we were up bright and early for a drive to
The Sunshine Coast...otherwise known as Eastbourne...although there wasn't much sunshine on view today!
Hubby and I spent a lot of our courting years ( and there were a lot of them!!!) visiting Eastbourne each year, so we have very happy memories of the place, and surrounding villages.
We had two reasons for choosing there today, firstly for a Bible Conference, where we knew we would meet up with friends we haven't seen for years.
We had a lovely day, with a delicious Meditteranean style lunch....yummm!
Teen One would have loved it!
We then planned to visit a family grave, to ensure the wording on the gravestone had been engraved as promised ( long story, should have been done years ago but the solicitor failed in his duty to organise it)
However, by the time we left Eastbourne the sun was starting to set ( sun...what sun?) and when we did arrive at the quiet village chapel, it was pitch black!
We hadn't really thought through all the timings and couple that with the afternoons getting dark earlier, we must have looked a spooky sight walking through the graveyard with torches!
Happily we found the grave pretty quickly, and the wording had been done, but disappointingly was already started to fade, unlike the Uncle's wording, who had died 14 years earlier.
So I feel another letter to the solicitor is needed sadly.
Back home, I have sorted the bunnies and gerbils for Teen Two and am looking forward to a bit of knitting.
