A fitting memorial

Last week should have proved to be a sad one for me. One funeral and one memorial concert to attend. There were tearful moments but, by and large, it was a very positive few days. We had a lovely stay with Barry and Hilary, in a room with an amazing view.

We got to spend some time down in Mousehole where Bill was helping to install the balks, the timbers that are fitted into the harbour gaps in November to offer the village some protection from the winter storms to come.

On Saturday we moved on to Truro, which was looking at its best decked out with its Christmas lights. We stayed with my daughter Ellie for a couple of days and, among other things, had a great time in a pub watching Ireland narrowly beat the Aussies at rugby.

The Lowenac Hotel in Camborne was the venue for Alistair ‘Larry’ Law’s memorial concert on Sunday. Organised by Mic McCreadie and hosted by John the Fish, it proved to be an incredibly fitting tribute to a great musician and all round lovely bloke. Mic along with Larry’s other musical friends, who’d played and sung with him over the years, donated their time and raised over £400 for the RNLI. His family and less musical friends were treated to a feast of stories and songs celebrating Larry’s life.

      Lord I have been slack Jo! Just spotted this comment. In fairness I’ve been a touch busy with work this winter (sorry for swearing!). We spent the winter in Stone and have set out again now. Plans include the Lancaster Canal and Liverpool. How are you two getting on?
