with love from Caernarfon, Wales (1981)

With love from Snowdon

5th/10/81 Dear Hilary, Enjoying the rest here away from it all. The weather has been very kind to us. We arrived in glorious sunshine (usually raining in wales all the time!!) We hope to visit Caenarfon tomorrow. Its supposed to be quite large. I hope you are enjoying yourself Lots of luv Janet xx

Here’s another one from Janet, having her second week in Wales that year!

The card was written on 5th October and she obviously did visit Caenarfon the next day, as the post mark reads ‘Caenarfon 6 OCT 1981 Gwynedd’. She’s put plenty of stamps on it to ensure safe arrival to me in Norway.

The other post mark somewhat bizarrely reads ‘Today’s POST OFFICE in business to serve you’ – an admirable sentiment at the time, but one which seems ironic today as much of the POST OFFICE is privatised!

The cartoon on the front illustrates the famous mountain train which runs from Llanberis to the top of Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon).


Janet and I have known each other for over 40 years…
