With love from South Devon (2016)

with-love-from-south-devon

11.9.16 Dear Hilary, Simon & Gus We’ve arrived safely & this cottage is fine but in the back of beyond with no mobile connection/service. However, tomorrow we are going further afield so hope to reply to your text at least Gus. Glad you recognised my talent! ☺ Hope weekend in Manchester has gone well too & the visit to Bangor. The weather is lovely & we’re all happy. Much love Mum & Dad xxx

Following on from previous post, this card shows the restored steam train that runs along the beautiful Dart Valley. It is not clear whether Mum & Dad travelled on the train, indeed, there is no news at all of what they have been doing on their trip, apart from seeking mobile signal it would seem!

There is no postmark, just a biro mark across the stamp indicating that the card has gone through the UK postal system and the stamp cannot be reused.

A recent card from my parents who continue to enjoy travelling, as well as embracing both modern and traditional methods of communication well into their eighties 🙂
