Picked up the rental car and Rhe practiced driving around Cardiff, inadvertently in circles, thanks to Tom (the GPS) and Joanne's lack of navigation skills. Finally got out of town and had a fun day driving around the beautiful hills in Pentyrch. Made our way to Newport and Caerleon looking for sites of burials and residences of Rhe's ancestors. Rhe did all the driving and Joanne the back-seat-driving/navigation.
Joanne was very impressed ...
... the boardwalk to C.J’s for supper then Verdi’s for dessert, then pop into The Waterloo for a nightcap where a very drunk couple chats with us and insists we try Joe’s ice cream (we politely say that we will definitely do that despite just having had ice cream). The bartender’s mom was from Rexdale and was currently visiting her ailing mother who lives on Kipling. Then home to pack. On to Liverpool tomorrow.

We were walking around ...
... I think the word is magnificent and I am sure the Victorians would have called it sublime. We sat there for some time.....the cliffs just along from us looked like green linen folds of cloth, tumbling over an enormous table top. The greenery of the land falls straight into the sea here, no gap of stone & clay, land is in charge.
Amazingly we walked back, it took an hour of concerntrated effort, not much chat and sweat.....needless to say we slept well that night.
