Monday 19th June 2017 to Hereford by Train (and back).
The guide books highly recommend taking a train to Hereford as the journey is beautiful and the city well worth a visit. So, we set off for Worcester railway station, pausing en route for an iced coffee in the Costa next to the station, the first of our summer cruise.
As we walked to the cathedral in Hereford, we passed two street musicians playing and raising money for the victims of the London tower-block fire. We recognised "Red, Red Wine" and "Three Steps to Heaven". Pleasingly, their collection bucket was full, but this young lady didn't care, she just danced to the music while eating her ice-cream.
Back at the station, it turned into a two Magnum day (or should that be "Magna"?).
As we sat waiting for the train, M fell into conversation with a lady carrying a large rucksac. It turned out to contain her paraglider. She had launched from the top of the Malvern Hills at Colwall and run out of lift in Hereford about 20 miles away! She was on her way back to Colwall by train.
As we crossed the Severn on our way back, M photographed MM waiting at her mooring.
