A morning at Abergavenny Fleamarket
We set off first thing yesterday to drive down to Abergavenny Fleamarket - it had been several months since we last went. As you can see, the Usk valley looked absolutely beautiful in the early morning sunshine.
This is Pen-y-Grug hillfort - THIS LINK will tell you all about it.
Above and below - these are the fabulous offerings made by one talented woman, who dresses the market for the Abergavenny Food Festival each year.
A couple of the stalls.
My friend Ann putting the finishing touches to her stall. We are opposite one another when we are selling at Carmarthen Fleamarket.
Finally, a couple of photos of Abergavenny, taken as we walked back to the car. Once again it is late and I slept badly again last night and am tired out, or there would be a few more words.
We managed to get a little bit more firewood today, but it has been like a feeding frenzy down there - many tons of wood having disappeared in the space of a few hours. We felt rather like scavengers competing with lions and hyenas - all we could get (being old and feeble) were a few small logs. Ah well, better than nothing . . . One gigantic log on the far side of the river was moved for someone by the guy with the crane and we were told it weighed in at 4 1/2 tons!
If you fancy seeing some old photos and postcards of Abergavenny - and singing along to an old song - HERE will take you. Debi's comment took me back half a century!!
