E-WOW: Wild on Windemere – Together in the Ether
THIS SATURDAY (16th) Atalanta Folk Transcend The Lockdown
A minor impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic has been the cancellation of our planned ‘Wild On Windemere’ meet up.
Well, we may not be able to travel to the Windermere Jetty Boat Museum but we can still enjoy their delights. Online, in the virtual world, as E-WOW!
There will be a ‘Virtual AOA Meet Up’ in the thread of this Forum Topic.
Starting at 12 midday there will be posts (Replies) against this Forum Topic which will bring us together in the Windermere Jetty Boat Museum and then, technology permitting, in a virtual meeting room for those that want. Grab a sandwich and a drink and join in:
1200 : Lunch, steam boat trips, an exploration of the Boat Museum. Grab a drink, a sandwich and your computer and come along.
1230 : Guided tour of part of the museum by one of the museum Curators.
1235 : An opportunity for logged-in users to chat to each other in a Virtual Meeting Room – just click on the link that will be posted below at the allotted time.
And of course we can all add our contributions throughout by adding ‘Replies’ as the event progresses.
In preparation for or get together I will ‘setting off’ as I originally planned on Friday around lunchtime heading for the National Trust Low Wray Campsite on the north-western shore of the lake.

Why not share your virtual journey on the day – just reply to this topic.
‘See you’ on Saturday.
