1984 Wallace Tartan postcard from Jean & HH -July 25
Have enjoyed learning about the Scottish Clans & Tartans here in Glasgow – near where Ballantynes lived in Paisley. Also tie to the Wallaces on front.
Really appreciated your aerogramme, MV – hope your roses do well & yard isn't too much for you + gardening, work, softball, etc.
We have a 9-hour bus ride today to Bangor, Wales – the area were the Hortons came from. Have been in several Woolworth stores & did buy bubbles. They have a lot of items from Hong Kong also. --Jean & Harold
|Anglesey Beumaris Castle (Wales) postcard - mailed 1984|
We visited here yesterday where they put on a 13th century "battle" - all in costume. The castle was started in 1295.
Attended the local Methodist Church - had 5 hymns - w/all verses sung. also had 6 P.M. service.
We have had Yorkshire pudding twice – a speciality – but wouldn't go out of our way for it.
Wales is such a beautiful country and they still retain their language as well as English though there is no similarity. Enjoyed a youth choir and a harpist last night who played & sang Welsh music.
Love to all – Harold & Jean

We got our rental car today – near the lower right hand corner castle. It's a right hand drive & shift w/ the left hand. It's a Ford Fiesta.
Plan to drive down the Coast of Wales – then to Bath/Bristol area, & then toward London
Went to the grocery today & got "provisions." Also a jack set. Wales has been great also – makes us want to read ore history. Glad to get MV's letter today. See Proverbs 25:25.
