A relatively short day today - in distance anyway. Checked out of the Aber Cottage in Dolgellau (pronounced - dol geth lee yeah I know we'll explain later) and wandered around this tiny hamlet. Very, very narrow streets. almost humerous that there are lines painted down the middle of the road when it is only 6 feet wide.
Said goodbye to Barabara at the cottage and headed out on the road. There is no way to drive these roads at what we consider high speeds in North America. BUT!!! the scenery makes you want to stop at every turn.
Stopped for lunch in Rhyader at one of the local pubs. I had a chicken breast that was smothered in port & stilton sauce. WOW! Wanted to lick the plate.
They had a vintage show ust down the street which had old cars, tractors and steam engines.
Pulled into a swank hotel in Cwmbran (you figure out how to say it) around 5:00pm. Had a swim and a hot tub.
Looking forward to dinner.
