Saturday September 15
We began the day with breakfast at 8:00 a.m. and spent some time in the B&B catching up on e-mail and writing the travel diary. Julie (our B&B proprietor) made us an extra pot of coffee and lit a log fire in the wood stove for us, making it rather cosy in the sitting room. The weather is certainly showing the beginning of autumn with mornings that are clear and somewhat chilly. We have not seen frost yet, but it would not surprise us if we did.
When we finally left the B&B, we drove to ‘Sunfold’ (the bungalow) and spent a few hours vacuuming and washing window ledges and other surfaces. The house was remarkably clean and the garden had been recently tended by Richard, so the property looks quite nice. Richard happened to be passing by as we were driving into ‘Sunfold’, so he popped in to see us. We arranged to meet for dinner with Pat and him this evening at the White Hart pub in Cenarth.
We left ‘Sunfold’ and headed back to the B&B, stopping at the elementary school just outside the little village of Cym-cou where we took a picture of the ‘wellies’ planted with flowers and hanging on the school-yard fence.
Back at the B&B, we put our feet up for a while before going out for dinner. We enjoyed our dinner at the White Hart with Richard and Pat, then said our goodbyes (again) before returning to the B&B. A fire had been lit again for us, so all was warm and cosy.
Our hosts, Julie and Robert and their two daughters are very busy folks. In addition to the sheep, pigs, a few cows and a couple of goats, they also have three horses and a pack of hounds. They are busy converting an older cottage into a self-catering holiday unit and spent most of the afternoon repairing a dry-stone wall and planting a hedge of laurel.
