A Very Happy Easter

Northern Lace

This year I decided to follow the German-speaking tradition and have an Easter tree.  I have been in Switzerland around Easter several times, and love the little scenes they set up in shop windows, cable car stations and everywhere else.

The decorations for my tree, the wreath and lights have come from many countries, from Latvia to China and back to the UK!  So enjoy some photos of them on this happy day.

Day 35 – Final Day in Bournemouth Friday July 13th 1934

They went for a long bicycle ride in the morning.  They rode along the East Cliff – about the same as the West.  They went through towns and rode for miles through woods filled with rhododendron.  They went through Christchurch and then to Ringwood – no trees just moors.  Heather everywhere.  Lunch in Ringwood.  When they got back they went down to the beach where she “made an easy pick-up” – Stewart Plantagenet Bishop, a commercial traveler.  He and his pal were fast workers.  They had a silly time fooling around.  My mother writes that it was very good that they were going to France that evening for the boys/men were too fast for Lib and herself.

After dinner they took the train to Southampton and left on the boat to France at 11;15 p.m.
