We’ve just been reminded why we don’t go to Wales very often: It absolutely pissed it down for much of our time there, so we came back early. I’m famed for phrases like “It’s only a bit of water, stop moaning”, but even I have limits, and yes, it always rains in Wales, but 3 days of almost continuous heavy rain and then more showers….

It wasn’t a disaster, but we were out in the car more than intended, on foot less than intended, and one evening couldn’t face leaving the cottage. Beautiful scenery, some nice roads, and a few nice places to go, but it felt like Rob McKenna was on holiday too.

edit: Pictures at the gallery. They’re not all rain, but 283 and 285 are only hours apart…
