Brecon beacons

Lock down restrictions in 2020 meant that non-essential travel was banned so we were unable to continue our travels in the early part of the year but in July when we decided to grace the lovely Welsh folk with our presence and headed for the Brecon beacons. First stop was a lay-by next to the Taly-bont reservoir (wicket.strumming.decorator) where we spent the night before continuing our journey to find some water falls. It was peaceful after the lads in the other van settled down. No trouble, felt safe.

A quick walk along the reservoir bank to explore. No paddle boarding allowed unfortunately!

In the morning we walked the dog and set off for the four falls (Gwuan Hepste). We found the official car park but it was shutting for the night so we parked in a Lay-by at the top off the hill on the A-4059 (edge.blurs.workbook). It was really foggy and we couldn't see much of the beautiful countryside but as you will see in the video below the sun came out in the morning and the views were fantastic so Andy sent the drone up for a better look. Then we went back down the hill the the car park to start our day.

By the time we were ready to start our walk the sun was blazing down on us so it was sun cream and hats all round! 'D' struggled a bit with the heat but we kept him well watered and had a few rest breaks on the way. The views were spectacular.

After the falls we drove back up to the lay-by on the A-4059 and fell into bed for a much needed sleep. The following morning it was raining so we had chosen the right day to see the waterfalls.  After the usual morning duties we set off to Penderyn to check out the distillery.  We had been told that Welsh whiskey was well worth a try so off we went.
