Welsh check flights and Scotch Eggs

First day of the 2016 Talgarth-Shobdon expedition went well, with lots of check flights keeping the CFI busy in KCZ.  Mynydd Troed ridge was working well along its length, but we were trapped below a cloudbase that gradually rose to 1,800 with Bob Sinden climbing 20,000 ft in wave ... oh no, apparently it was 2,000 feet. We retired to the legendary Honey Cafe for Welsh cakes, bara brith and  cream scones. The influence of the hills on the clouds could be seen as we retired back to our cottages for dinner.  Dinner ranged from Takeaway Cod and Chips from The Castle hotel, to fine dining at Foyles Restaurant - Scotch Eggs were a popular starter.

The clouds mirror the shape of the Welsh ridges at Talgath
