Our overseas jaunt started with a traversal of the 'wider-than-the-Mersey' Severn to start our mini-break at St. Fagan's National History Museum just west of Cardiff. This is an open-air site where numerous historical buildings have been lovingly and carefully rebuilt. We started in the Celtic roundhouses where Clare had a chance to question a native (below) about the central heating (pictured).
Then it was off to Barry island, home of the famous "Gavin and Stacey" where we both paid homage by eating chips on a litter-strewn beach. The white item stranded on the sand in Clare's picture is an item of feminine underwear: don't ask!
Someone has invested in new parking facilities, how about a sign on the A369?
