We left the Manor House after a comfortable night in the attic and headed for the hills. We went from Crickhowell to Brecon to Libanum where we went for a ramble on the moors.

Earl and Ken, there were lots of sheep and some pretty yellow flowers, we have got some seeds to bring home for you to plant on the farms. The national park has roads and villages all through it and plenty of people exploring. There were little tracks cut through the bracken. Very different to the national parks in New Zealand.

We carried on to the National Wool museum (surprise surprise). It was an old woollen mill at on the Cambrian mountain range with all the machinery still in pace and used for demonstrations. Unfortunately there were none today and they wouldn't let me play with the machines! The weaving part of it is still run as a commercial enterprise, weaving items to order for clients all over the world.

Tonight we are at Carmarthen staying with Harriett, the niece of Nancy and Bryan, friends of Linda. Her kittens have been helping me write this post so I will blame them for any typos. It is nice to have another night in a house rather than a hotel - especially with my track record of bookings!

Hi Gaynor, your ramblings sound wonderful! No seeds for your your friends!! They grow so prettily in the UK - Mother Nature has not intended them for NZ. Stunning photos xx
