21/7/2012-- Woke up this morning, it was very cold and was not easy to get out of bed. It was cold enough to get the heater out and plug it in. Ahhhh that was better. Our trip today was just to go to our next destination which was only an hour and a half away. It was a scenic way and I must say, Wales has some very beautiful countryside. The fact that the sun was shining helped a lot. This little town is famous for its salmon fishing. It has falls where the salmon tried to jump up stream once a year. We are a little early for that but it was still nice to look at the area. Also the town is historic and has a vast history with the little boats they call coracles, these are one man boats which they used to carry on their shoulders to the water, and did all their fishing in them. Lots of remimders in the town of that . A very historic place which is now full of cafe's and eateries. Nice to walk through though and easy as well. The park is lovely, only 29 sites, nice facilities and once again the sun was out today. Had a nice chat this evening to the couple parked next door to us and have been invited to visit their home when we get to Yorkshire.
Tomorrow we are going for a drive around this area and will come back here for one more night.
A good day today, even managed to sit in the sun for a little while and feel a bit of warmth. Great stuff
