Went to Wales
I had to go to Swansea for a short business trip. I hadn't been to Wales in about 20 years, and all I remember from last time was that it rained endlessly. And we went on a train.
This time, no train, and we had some gaps in the rain!
This was my welcome at the hotel - some Welsh cakes (delicious!) and a little bottle of Grays & Feather bubbly (not tried yet)!
This was the view of the marina from my hotel room:
I'd been in the car from 7am through 12:30 (thank you, M25 at rush hour) and then in and out of meetings all afternoon. By the time we got to the hotel, I was in dire need of a little bit of exercise. I'd looked online and seen that they had a pool, so had brought my swimsuit rather than my running gear. I didn't have enough time for a swim, so I decided to go for a walk. I asked at reception if there was a good place for a walk nearby, and the chap on reception told me to walk to the back of the car park and turn left, where I would find the promenade.
It was SO beautiful and reminded me of Jones Beach (and made me wish I'd brought my running gear)!
I got a little carried away with the pictures.
Apparently dogs in Wales understand Welsh and English.
No idea what this sculpture is, but I thought it was really neat.
So that was my brief encounter with Swansea. Who knew?!
