Yesterday as the news was settling upon us, Lauralea and I were talking, looking at a map of the U.K.
She said she would love to be able to stop in the town where her ancestors came from. She said it was a place called Kendal, so we found it on the map and wondered if we would be able to make our way there. It looks a bit off the beaten path.
And that was all there was to it.
This morning there was an email waiting in the queue of morning mail in my account. One caught my attention because it was an offer of a bed in the lake district.
It was from Rachel and her generous offer was a pleasant surprise to me. She's a reader here and like most of you, a quiet reader.
I thought this might be a good opportunity to meet somebody new. It was kind of cool.
Then I read the bottom of her email, with her name and address.
Seems she lives on Burneside Road.
