For the culinary record, I should add that we partook of tea at the Melyn Tregwynt near Abermawr. The food was OK but the welcome was not very, mmmm, welcoming. I don't think we'll be returning.
A quick turnaround when we got back and it was off to the Cathedral for our fix of Choral Evensong. To our surprise we were treated to the full pomp and ceremony of a Candlemass Service and Procession, with the Bishop of Wales, Wynn Davies, in attendance. As ever, fantastic singing from the cathedral choir. One soprano in particular has an ethereal, soaring voice which is a bit of a surprise as she is the smallest in the ensemble. Small in stature maybe but large of voice. Another great evening of music. Only one more to go for this break - boo hoo!
|The walk begins with a stream.................|
|We came up a very steep climb from the right and went to the left. Our path is visible just to the top of the sign.|
|I woz yer with my size 10s. Well, one of them: I hopped around to make it more challenging.|
|Panoramic views all the way around. This is the view from Mynydd Caregog down to the coast and Newport Sands.|
|All the weather was coming from the west and, with Carn Edwards to the right, we walked towards a relatively blue sky and no rain.|
|This is how a lady appears after a long and muddy walk.|
|And this how a mucky b*gger like me ends up - always, without exception - even when we've been walking on dry roads. It's just another unique talent I have.|
|.........and ends with a (different) stream.|
