YH13UGJ - Idiot speeding in a BMW

Yesterday in Aberaeron in Wales, this driver overtook me speeding in a 30 mph zone, and nearly took out some pedestrians crossing the road. Of course his rushing didn’t get him very far at all.

Grenade found on New Quay beach

It was apparently discovered by a child while digging a sandcastle, the one on the left in the top photograph. I asked a police officer what type of grenade it was, and he replied that he didn’t know except that it was a “pineapple shaped one”. Shortly after these photos were taken, the grenade was detonated in a controlled explosion and the crowd broke into spontaneous applause. The explosion was louder than I expected.

Ystrad Aeron

This is the Brinog Arms at Ystrad Aeron. It is on the Dylan Thomas walking trail, mentioned as the one pub (of two pubs in Ystrad Aeron) which was not Thomas’ favourite watering hole when he lived in nearby Talsarn in the 1940s.

Mydroilyn to Llanina

On Easter Sunday I rode to Llanina with my sister. We visited the church of Saint Ina formerly King Ine of Wessex and then went to the beach.

Mydroilyn to New Quay

Some excerpts of our ride yesterday from Mydroilyn to the coast, and back.  The journey back (which doesn’t feature on this video) was a bit quicker because we didn’t get lost.  I enjoyed the lumpiness of the roads, including the steady 2 kilometre climb from Llywynon at sea level up to A487 (a 4.4 degree climb).
