Well, we had beautiful weather on Tuesday, and Judith and Abi came over the water from Somerset on a calm clear day. Julie picked us up from the front at Penarth, and we all went to St Fagan's - a rather delightful 'theme park' of Welsh Life, which contains buildings from all periods of Welsh history, moved from their original locations stone by stone, and rebuilt in amongst tall trees. There are mills, and churches, and farm houses; a reconstructed Celtic village and late 19th Century shops. We finished the day with an excellent Italian meal on the front at Penarth (I highly recommend that place if you ever find yourself there - it's the second time we have eaten there, and both times was superb).
