Staycation

Not been on holiday this year but have had some great days out with my special friend..

Last Thursday we went on the Severn Valley Railway to Bewdley. Sixty years ago we used to go to school together on a train like this. The acrid smoke, the net luggage rack above our heads, the leather strap on the window. The emergency cord which you weren't supposed to touch .......  brought it all back ......












Felt  as though I was on holiday

  3. Looks like someone's got their ducks in a row :)
    I like the old steam trains, but there doesn't seem to be any around here. I'd have to travel a bit to find one.

  5. It is so nice to see you again on Blogger, Molly. It is good to read that you enjoying the company of an old friend and getting out and about.

    As a kid, I traveled by train always. It still is my favorite mode of transportation. I am also having staycations with only day trips that are not far away. I hate packing and unpacking and this fits me well now.

    1. Hello Arleen. Enjoy your trips out and I agree who wants to spend time packing and unpacking xxx

  6. Well, fancy that. I hadn't had a real holiday since Barbara passed on, but this year I too went up to the Severn Valley, but this time in my little motor-home and camped up with the Caravan Club at Hampton Loade. Bought a freedom-of-the -line ticket and spent all day enjoying rides to all the stations. The market in Bridgnorth was really good that day. Do you get to ride on the Welshpool & Llanfair railway? I have yet to try that one out.
    Best wishes

  7. Hello Bernard. Great to hear from you. I went with my friend Marjorie for the day. Sounds like your holiday was just what you needed. We went on the train from Bridgenorth to Kiddeminster and then on the coach to Bewdley. I haven't been on the Llanfair Light Railway but used to pass it every day when I worked at the Llanfair GP Surgery.
