Bank holidays can mean traffic jams, lots of stressful travelling and rushing around trying to make the most of an extra day off work.
Not for us today….
We stayed close to home, ditched the car and used what was on our doorstep.
Cycling on the Welsh Coastal Path through Penarth and around Cardiff Bay we enjoyed the lovely sunshine until the last 15 minutes when the heavens opened and we ended up getting completely soaked through!
Looking at this photograph you would never have guessed how wet we were going to end up.
However it was well worth the soaking as we didn’t have to get in the car and really enjoy an afternoon out right on our doorstep.
One of the many reasons why I love living in Wales.
This is one of the reasons I love camping.
I love getting up early and feeling the quiet beginnings of the morning.
With everybody still asleep, I enjoy the peace and the cold crisp air.
In that early hour I’m away from alarms, noise and the normal rush of a morning at home.
And nothing is better than a hot cup of coffee looking at this view.
For me it’s the best way to start a morning.
