I decided to take a drive up over the Brecon Beacon "mountains" to Hay-on-Wye, known as the town of books for all its used book and antique shops. Clearly a dangerous place for me!
The drive up to Hay was a bit harrowing, with the fog, the narrow roads and the right-hand drive car!
I spent the afternoon wandering the tiny streets of Hay and found a few things to bring back with me.
Today, Andy and I headed out for our favourite pursuit: poking around junk shops! Success for both of us in the village of Cowbridge.
We spent the afternoon catching up with a long walk along the wide beach at Ynys y Barri or Barry Island.
For reference, this picture was taken at about 2:15 in the afternoon, and it is almost totally dark just after 4:00 p.m.
Back to London on Wednesday for more fun!
