Back in July, when aibhinn came over to stay, we went up to Kendal in the Lake District, which happens to be the home town of Sir Arthur Eddington. The highlight of the day was our visit to the beautiful Quaker Tapestry.
A real labour of love designed and worked by Quakers worldwide, the Tapestry is a vibrant and beautiful narrative of Quaker history, faith and activism in many different spheres, science included.
If you click on Panels and scroll down to D10, you’ll see a portrait of Eddington. The website is being redesigned and there don’t seem to be any larger images but I’ll try and get hold of one and scan it in if people are interested.
Another memory I treasure from that day – as we were waiting for a train at the tiny station with its single platform, Lissa pointed out five little brown rabbits on the grass verge just a couple of feet away from us. It was like something straight out of Beatrix Potter!
