Stormy Sunday

The clocks went forward last night, so we woke even earlier to hear the rain and wind howling round the house. However, a search for 'things to do in Wales' produced a plan to visit Merthyr Tydfil for a trip on the Brecon Mountain Railway. Three coaches and a steam engine - and lots of steam. We trundled up the valley past a couple of reservoirs, then back again, stopping off at the Steam Museum and café.

 We drove back via Talybont to check out the reported landable fields in the area - which were mainly stuffed with sheep and lambs. There is however a good long flat field (with no sheep) at the end of the reservoir.

Nick has come round for dinner (roast pork, roasted veg), he drove over to Aberystwyth to see the sea. Yesterday he visited Long Mynd where they were winching - 30kts onto the ridge, no problem.

Tomorrow it looks as though it will be worth getting up early - fingers crossed - this is after all a gliding expedition.
