Day 3 Hay on Wye

Following on from yesterday's post, we had a group of students come to the door last night and sing carols for us, which was a lovely treat.

Today was cold, clear and sunny  - a perfect winter day.  Who says they don't have nice winter weather in this part of the world.  Mind you there was snow in some parts of the country.

We walked to Hay on Wye along the public footpath through muddy fields this morning and spent an enjoyable morning exploring the town and browsing the shops.

We drove to Talgarth late morning.  We had lunch at a bakery in a restored flour mill and then toured the mill which was actually grinding grain today.  It was very interesting to have the process explained and to see it working.

We spent an hour taking the dog for a walk to the Begwyns where there were great 360 deg views around the Wye Valley.  It was so clear.
