We've been lucky, we've had rain, hailstones and sleet but no snow on the lower ground although it's certainly cold enough for snow. Our walk this mornings took Liz and I through the town and up to Pen-y-coed woods following tracks new to us. The dogs had a lovely time as we did a circular route before coming back through the town. The views were great as we could see all the snow on the Llantisilio Mountains as well as views of Castell Dinas Bran and Trevor Rocks. It was a change to walk new territory as the dogs could run in the woods which were so peaceful. We'd passed the kissing gate leading to the woods but hadn't ventured through before. We try to avoid the towpath walks at the weekend as it can be very busy.
Dogs walked we left them on the boats to have lunch at 'The Cowshed'. I had no idea where we were going at Liz and Nick were taking us there. We arrived at the Plassey Shippon and found the restaurant to be a converted cowshed with the tables having the names of cows in each individual stall. Our table was in Ethel's stall! A lovely meal with good friends, although we were surprised to see the restaurant was really quiet with lots of unfilled tables even though it was Sunday lunch. Now I know why Liz told me we were going to 'The cowshed!
