At about 10 hours the wedding celebration yesterday was a major event but that was not the end. Months ago we had been invited via Facebook to Bas & Anna’s BBQ Recovery at the farmhouse where Angela and family were staying. That was scheduled for midday until 8:00 pm but the word last night was that a mid to late afternoon arrival would be appropriate. That allowed time for some other activities.
This day had been at the core of our travel plans for more than a year. Bas (Sebastian) Pelly, youngest child of Angela and Liam, was to be married to Anna Heale in Derbyshire. From the time the invitation arrived more than a year ago we had been going to be here along with all of Majella’s siblings and many more family and friends. It was to be a big day.
