Day 7: Coventry to Cardiff
We left Jim’s in pouring rain, heading SW towards Cardiff. We weren’t able to arrange to see Pat – he’s in Texas at the moment – but still wanted to see south Wales. Also, I had arranged to meet with a fellow geocacher who had been caring for one of my travelers for quite some time.
Arriving in Wales across the Severn Bridge (wow!) we headed a little bit north into ‘The Valleys’. We ate lunch in a café in Newbridge, listening to the wonderful accents. We then headed south to Cardiff. What a beautiful city. Accommodation is in an old B&B, Penrhys, just out of the city centre. The building has been kept as original, dating back well over 100years. Apparently it was owned bythe owner of a coal mine. By dinner time it was pouring again, so we headed out by car and found ‘Robin Hood’, an old pub serving the best food we’ve come across at the cheapest prices we’ve seen.
