|Joseph R. Rose's wedding 1901 - wish we knew who the other people were.|
I first met Hannah Mack on Ancestry.com, and we've since become friends on Facebook, even though I am older than her parents. She has a History MA, which explains why a young person is so interested in family history. She is also a distant cousin, being a descendant of my favourite ancestor's 17th child! I am the descendant of his 2nd child, who is 27 years older than hers.

Ange and Paul had driven me down to their village just outside Poole, so after a delightful visit with Hannah's family, we set off to have lunch at Highcliffe, which is on the south coast outside Bournemouth. It was very wet, quite a miserable day for driving really. But we had a delightful lunch, apart from Paul getting exceedingly wet when he found the accessible entrance to the restaurant locked. He nearly ran over the waitress who opened the door - she did not realise she was in his way.

The cobbles were no good for wheelchair users. There was no one else around since the shops had just shut and it was very miserable with the rain. A delightful small town though.
