Feels Like Years Since It's Been Here...

Feels Like Years Since It's Been Here...

England’s weekend has been gloriously sunny: in particular, Sunday was the sort of day we seem to get all too rarely, cloudless and bright. Unfortunately, we were inside for much of it – Dan had a gig at Acoustic Lunch, in The Old Rectifying House of Worcester. The pub is right on the river, and though a very fine and relaxed afternoon was had with music, papers and good friends, upon walking to the train around 6pm we did sort of wish we’d been outside!

We managed a sun day on Saturday, though, enjoying the Georgian charms of Bewdley, and more specifically the excellent fish and chips of its famous (in these parts) fish bar. Tradition has it that Bewdley played home to Charles II on his retreat from Worcester, and boasts not one but two Black Boy Inns named after the fugitive king. It also has a station on the Severn Valley Railway, which the steam geeks in us had to visit in time to see an engine pull in: Anna’s granddad was a huge fan of old trains, and we like to think we’re checking up on the old place for him.

And while the jam at Ashwood Nurseries today was too rich for the blood of some, our walk on Highgate Common was just the thing for a warm bank holiday: not too taxing, but just enough to enjoy the weather. Thanks, sun! See you again in a few months, we should think…
