Afternoon everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on Bracelet Bay and a big thank you to Christina for her UA on The Boat House - very much appreciated.

Not been around much for a few days, we have both had throat infections, although John has been much worse than me. Will catch up with everyone soon.

We wrapped up warm and had a walk around Margam Park yesterday afternoon for an hour, it's only about three miles from us, and we were surprised to see that the snow had gone from there, but the lakes were frozen over. It's trying hard to snow again today, we have had a bit off and on. It's certainly cold !!!

Here's a shot of the castle taken yesterday afternoon, and a goat that was snuggled up in the hay.
