Brecon Break

A favourite excursion for Brummies is to Wales.  A beautiful country with rich landscapes and a couple of hours or so in the car.
I had a day walking in the Brecon Beacons with friends from Amnesty International local group - see another blog post for a summary!
It's also where we get our water from - see the mini-model-reconstruction of the Elan Valley Dam in Cannon Hill Park - and so we live in part from the water of the beautiful hills and valleys of the country.
There was plenty of water present in the mud and streams, as well as mist that covered much of the scenery above about 200 metres (ie most of the Brecons): but that didn't stop us enjoying the walk and getting back in one piece as well ...
