Dear Bob. Having quite a nice time, the weather so far has not been very good – not much rain, but not a lot of sun. Spent last evening at Saltash at our sons place. Tell you all news when we see you. Love Joyce and Reg”

“Monday. We are still having a lovely time and beautiful weather. Today we have been to Paignton Zoo. It was the hottest day we have had so far there was shade in the zoo and it was a very interesting place. We saw the bridges pictured on this card, the front bridge is the new road bridge and the back one is the rail bridge built by Brunel. Hope you are keeping well. Love from us all. Sidney”

“Dear Auntie Elsie. We are enjoying our holiday very much. The weather has been lovely so far – a very warm and sunny Wednesday. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Jersey. Here it is quite good, and there has not been too much rain. We have been about quite a bit and think the coast line somewhat rugged. Love, Ethel and George.”

“Dear Nana. Hope you are well and have good weather. The weather here is quite good and we are all fairly sun-tanned. We still have a lot of time left here, so are all happy. Love Adrian.”

“Raining today does not look like clearing. Hope children will have another surf, which they love, tomorrow or Sunday. I am sunburnt from Tuesday. Beach closed each afternoon for surfing, too treacherous. Hotel nice and overlooks Bay lot further to right. Going to Dorothy’s tomorrow and taking her and friend out to dinner. John looking well, walking every day but diet forgotten of course. Lots of love John, Sue, Glen & Darlene.”

    This is so surreal. I have Ballykissangel on the television and I am looking at photos of Cornwall. Maybe someday I’ll actually make it on the other side of the Pond. That photo of Lynton and Lynmouth is nice; the flowers are lovely contrast to the hills.
