      ... and stayed about 3 hours. Tristan thinks that he won the tower building competition but Jo-Ann's reached the ceiling first. Amy's was the most artistic, Jessamy's looked like the Eiffel tower and Kelly's looked like the design plan with a twist.
      Not much happened for the rest of the day. After some indecision we finally had Subway for late lunch, walked back to the hotel via and exercise park and housing estate canal, and drove over to pick up our ...

Gotta watch out for that tide though!

      Thursday a day of cleaning and getting things sorted for Baz's return tomorrow morning at 6.30am. Lasagne made for his dinner, hope he's got a few guests to share it with, it's rather large for one person. Washing, cooking, cleaning, vacuuming and PACKING - argh!!!!!!!!!!!!

      ... But, not for us crazy travellers. We were here in winter in pursuit of castles.

      The remainder of the castles we explored in Wales did not disappoint.

At Tintern Abbey, we were excited about the beauty of this abbey ruin, and at Caerphilly Castle, we finally got some good weather to go along with the majestic scene of a Welsh ...
