May 9 Thursday
Awakened before 5 a.m. and watched the colouring of the sky & sea from the rising sun – so got up early to run down to the beach & get a snap of Crazy Kate's Cottage & Clovelly before leaving at 9 a.m. On arriving at the corner to meet the Mail 3 Eng. ladies were dressed picnic fashion & luncheon baskets – greeting me. Good morning so your leaving C – etc. etc. finally they persuaded me to change my mind & spend the day with them at Bucks Mills – I readily did for I wanted to go there – and we had the loveliest day – I'm beginning to think a holiday on ones own is just the thing – and it does do one good to meet and know all sorts of people - for I find
you there is goodness everywhere.
The Valley of Bucks is beautiful.
