we wouldn’t normally book a minibobs for so late in the year, but in the last week in november, sydney and our new brofur lyndon fuzzy furrington from #toddyshug had a few days break in cardiff. this is their blog…
we had decided to stay in the bay, as it was cheaper; it took a while to get there by bus from the train station – i’m sure it would have been much quicker to walk!
the hotel was right behind the millennium centre, so we were hopeful of a nice view – oh, a car park…
we dropped our bags off and were soon out about the bay to make the most of the remaining light;
the next morning, tuesday, we caught a few trains to bath, getting there at about 10:30am. fuzzy has been a couple of times, but didn’t see much on either occasion (the closest he’s been to having a bath).
there were a few ‘sheds’ ready for the chrimbles market, but we were a couple of days early for that.
we saw that the abbey was free to go in, so we went in…
it was a bit noisy due to having work done but it was a nice building.
i liked it very much, it was reminiscent of york – without the city wall. i’m sure we’ll be back soon.
when we got back to our room there was a very noisy noise; long story short – we were moved to another room.
the next morning, wednesday, the human went out without her brolly after seeing the forecast was for mainly dry weather; then went back for it when she saw the actual weather. i wisely had my mac on. the morning was spent in the shopping centre until it finally stopped raining at about noon.
we had a look at the christmas market stalls and bought three badges; one with ‘the beatles’, one with a ‘biscuit’ and one with a rainbow stripe. two pounds well spent!
we then had a walk to the park, passing the castle wall with it’s flock of deer
later, we were back at the bay…
thursday was our last day. we spent the morning around the bay
after some lunch, and collecting our cases we decided to walk into town – it was definitely quicker than the bus! we had a while before needing to catch the train home so went to the market to get a bag of welsh cakes – yummy yum yum! a perfect ending to our minibobs.
sydney and lyndon signing off; byeeee *waves*
