Island Stories

Tales and Trails 2009 by firelight

The Telling Space Storytelling Club which meets at Mythstories Museum of Myth and Fable in Wem had its annual Tales & Trails story contest last night, held on a privately-owned island in the River Severn in Shrewsbury. Fortunately for us, the island belongs to one of the club members and her family. It was decorated in our honour with nightlights and candles and fairylights, transforming it into a perfect location for the story contest. Even the weather stayed fine for us. Before we crossed the bridge to the island, a flotilla of little paper boats were launched, bearing tea-lights. A pretty constellation on the river to match the twinking stars overhead.

  1. One of the boats was seen passing through Bridgnorth this (Thursday 24th) morning, alas the nite-lite had gone out. This calls for a strong letter to the manufacturers.

    They were fine boats, Dez. My own is now sitting on my computer, crewed by two blue plastic spacemen.
