Sunny morning in Brilley

We are having a lazy morning. It started out being misty, but it has cleared quite a lot and we now have sunshine. We slept in until about 8.00 a.m. We have been moving each day since Sunday and this is the first time we have had two nights in one place. Our plan today is to visit Hay on Wye, and also plan the rest of our little trip in the car.

I’ve made a slideshow of our climb yesterday, but our internet is too slow and it was taking forever to upload. I’ll try again when we have faster internet.



Crossing the border

Today we walked up North Hill about halfway, shared a roast meal, followed by sponge with jam and cream, then drove from the Malvern Hills to a little place called Brilley in Wales. We paid one pound at the border crossing.

North Hill, The Malverns

Tonight and tomorrow night we have a cottage all to ourselves with kitchen and living downstairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. We are on a little hobby farm with dogs, chickens, geese and horses.

Tomorrow we plan to explore the Wye valley. I drove through here on my own about 32 years ago.

I’m very tired and will write again tomorrow.
