Yesterday was far too nice a day not to take advantage of the sunshine and go for a walk. Once we had unpacked from the Fair, Tam and I set off to Brecon to do the shopping there for a change. We normally go once a month. We parked near to the Canal and walked beside it for about a mile and a half, up as far as the A40. On returning to the car I foraged a few tiny yellow Mirabelle plums which had fallen from a tree on the bank by the road, caught by tangles of ivy and long grass and so unbruised. There was a similar sized red one too, but I couldn't shake any down!
Purple Loosestrife was still in full bloom along the Canal.
We had been watching lots of small fish in the canal until this private narrowboat came along and muddied the waters! This gentleman's good lady was sat in the front with her crochet.
We had a lovely shady spot - this was the last grass pitch they had - they had suggested going by the wall of a building, but I wanted to try and tether the gazebo (a wise move as it got gusty on Saturday afternoon). Lots of folk said what a lovely spot we had, and we didn't boil like the other outside folk in full sun. On the Sunday we mopped up a few sales too as people who still had money left, came and shopped with us on the way out. I sold my three lovely children's chairs to a Dealer friend so they will now be offered in her Narberth shop.
