Back to Ballina

I had another visit to Ballina. Sadly, this time it was to go to Peter's funeral. Peter was Mum's partner for many years. He fought illness off with great vigour, and finally slipped quietly away.
This is Peter. He had a long and interesting career. He was in service in a stately home in Cornwall (so, you know, he was one of the younger footmen in Downton Abbey.). He was on the staff at a posh London club. He was a salesman. He was a caterer and waiter. Here he is running a function in Brisbane.

They retired to Ballina about twenty years ago, and went up north to Cairns many times.
I went up for the funeral, and spent a few days with Mum. So the next post can be about fun things!
