Sunday at Montalto

Sunday 31st October over 20 members of the Anderson Clan gathered on Reformation Sunday at Montalto House Ballynahinch.

Welcoming tea and coffee preceded a long walk around the estate, through the trees and lands that make up Montalto.

David's hospitality was once again exceptional as we were treated to pumpkin soup, Tai chicken curry, lasagna, sausages, rice, potatoes, vegetables and a selection of breads. Tea, coffee, apple pie, apple crumble, ice cream, fresh fruit, buns, cakes - and that was just on my plate.
My mum, Mrs. Anderson Snr, informed me that I had lost enough weight and that I should consolidate what I have lost - I agreed and got stuck into the feast provided.

There was a pumpkin parade just after dark and 10 Chinese lanterns were sent into orbit, which was very exciting for the kids and the adults alike!

Great to see another brother there - wee Clarkie (Clarke) he enjoyed the company of his extended family for the first time in a while!

Another clan gathering has been planned for Christmas between Christmas day and the New Year - hope it snow’s like last year.
