Das Andenken

Click on any image for a larger version

It was 50 years ago this year that Silke came over from Neustadt to stay with my cousins, the Hegartys.

That family organised a remembrance get together this weekend to which Silke returned with her partner, Wilfred, and her niece, Svea.

It was a great family occasion, and I came away with a physical souvenir as well as great memories.

A rainbow loom Irish/German friendship bracelet. These were woven by Paul and Andrew Watson (first cousins twice removed, if you must know.)

To be carefully treasured and worn when I next visit Germany.

This is the home site for the bracelets and this his how you make them.

Thanks to Thérèse for conceiving the event and to Brian, Carmel and Niamh for hosting it.
