Abbey and Castle ruins of South East Wales
« on: March 24, 2012, 08:18:33 PM »
A fine Saturday was in store and my wife decided she would go into Cardiff for the day with her mum and sister, so my brother in law and his fearsome son, Alfie went ona  trip around some of the ruined castles and an Abbey. Chepstow will have to be reshot as middle of the day meant fairly flat unhelpful light. 

We started in Tintern at the Abbey:

After stopping in Chepstow, me stopped for lunch between Chepstow and Newport to allow some time for the sun to lower and then made our way to Caerphilly, home to one of the largest castles in Europe:

Beautiful day, beautiful pictures... Thanks. Cold and rainy here in California, but that's okay the mark iii doesn't arrive for a few more days...
I was kind of hoping for another pic of Alfie showing us his finger...lol ;D
