Tuesday – Concert and visit to South Norwood Park

Today has been quite cold and it almost rained in the afternoon. Stephen met up with Ken, a singing colleague from Perth, at the library, then we all met for lunch at Fairfield Halls. We went to a little concert with a piano/violin duo playing English music. It was quite good although I was a bit sleepy and the music was soothing rather than exciting.

Afterwards we took a tram to South Norwood Park. We walked across the park, saw some bird life on a small lake, and caught the tram back to East Croydon where we had hot drinks and pastries at a cafe. Ken is quite lively and entertaining and we have enough in common to find him good company. We hope that he finds us good company too.

We then retreated to our lovely warm apartment for the rest of the day. I wrote postcards to Matt and Mum and posted them on our way home.
