The day started a bit early in Cardiff , but despite the chill, the sky
was bright and clear. As we left Cardiff the mist and fog descended and
hung around most of the day not lifting until we approached
Chester.First stop Tincturn Abbey( will check the spelling ) , another
ruined abbey in the Wye valley, but very beautiful with the backdrop of
forest and low mist.We then followed the road up the ...
... Greg has been suffering from a heavy dose of the flu so we spent most of the day sitting in Chequers Restaurant at the track watching the racing on the big screen as it was bitterly cold outside. Sunday’s first race was won by Josh Brookes. It looked like Shane Byrne would finish 2nd but he stopped in the last lap and did not finish – we think he ran out of fuel.

Next on the list was Temple Bar. We headed in for dinner, along with thousands of other tourists!!! It was lively, busy, noisy. Lesley found us a bar and we sat down to dinner, a couple of G & T's and some lively atmosphere. The Irish Music wasn't happening until later in the evening.....and we were too tired to stay up !! Weather mild.....so we walked home.
