The first chore, after breakfast was to take the bike to the bike shop to get the brakes seen to, then visit the cathedral and then rather than later to set off for the day’s ride.At first flat riding along the towpath of the Brecon canal and then over the hills, after having been sent the wrong way, to Hay-on-Wye for lunch.  More hills afterwards and on the last and hardest, being greeted by my sobriquet by a complete stranger – who turned out to be the husband of the lady who ran the B&B that I was to stay at.  She was an erstwhile member of The Epiphany Singers (small world).

Then off to have a very enjoyable evening with Henry and Wendy (my half-sister).  What a great day!  Even if it did have its bad moments.

 


Walsham would not be the same without the village church and the regular sound of the church bells.
