Bridge moving

Today we started early and made our way to Brecon Beacon National Park. Saw loads of sheep and gorgeous scenary. Next up was Wye valley were we saw a waterfall and did a bit of a hike down a trail that was basically all mud because of course it was raining.

Our next stop was Castell-y-bere. A castle ruin with amazing views of the land around as it was high up on a hill. Some sheep were wandering around the area. There was a lot of fog in the air so we weren't able to see very far.

Our stop for the evening was Caernarfon. We visited with the Aussies down in the common room of our hostel and then went out to find a grocery store to get dinner. I introduced Susanne to Bulmers or Magners as it is called outside of Ireland. It's like Stronbow but a million times better.

We walked around the town in the evening. The town has a castle and a medieval wall built around part of the town also. I crossed over the bridge from where the ocean comes into the small harbour. A few sailboats were coming in and I got trapped on the other side of the bridge as it has to turn to one side to let boats in.
