A day out in the sunshine.

This morning dawned with a good blanket of fog and a definite nip in the air. However it did not last long, I took Ben out for his walk and saw the fog hanging in the low areas, by the time I got him home and popped out with my camera it had almost gone.


This is directly opposite me and you can plainly see the fog hanging.


2 minutes down the road and the fog has all but gone, just some wispy remnants, this was at 8 this morning. 


This is the same general area 2 minutes later.

I usually drive a friend to Neath on Monday morning but the meeting was cancelled so we hopped in the car, along with Ben, and went off to Brecon.
Most of the trip was in glorious sun but within 5 miles of Brecon we ran into mist, nothing to write home about really.


I stopped to take a few pics, as you can see the sun is shining and the sky is blue.


Swing the camera to the right though and you see the fog sitting in a pocket.



Here is both fog and fine, this is why people get into difficulties in the Beacons. Just like Dartmoor the terrain is wild and the weather is unpredictable.




This little brook came tumbling out of the ground, chattering along only to vanish back into the earth.

We went into Brecon despite the mist, it was not cold just in traffic turmoil. The high street was closed off and a funfair of sorts was being set up. We had a walk round  and I found the little fabric and haberdashery shop. They have a large selection of Moda Scrap Bags for £12, and they were open so you could see just what you were getting. Yes I did buy one and yes I did forget to take a photo, I will do so tomorrow.
We had intended to walk Ben along the tow path but instead we headed back home and walked around the footpaths.


This young colt is very friendly and always greets passers by.


Mum does her own thing but keeps a weather eye on him.

I had a lovely day out, I am off to Neath tomorrow afternoon, Maggie is looking at another house. In the morning I hope to spend a little while in the garden, I have a small bed that needs clearing and some bulbs to plant.

  4. Will have to look out for that shop next time we are in Brecon (or on the way to Hay). We seem to just go to the Auction in Brecon and come home these days. Glad you got out and up over the mountains in the sunshine. We went to the beach . . . AGAIN!!

    1. It was okay, but I did not see anything but the Moda scrap bags to interest me. Nothing wrong with another beach trip.

  6. We had about 3" of snow by noon today. Neighbour did some of the shovelling for us. I went out and did the driveway and the back patio. It's the heavy wet stuff. Fortunately it's only about 2degreesC so it is melting slowly. I haven't heard that we are going to get any more this week but you never now. Your pictures look lovely with the beautiful blue sky. Have fun house hunting tomorrow.
