Another wonderful day, how wrong were the weather forecasts from a week ago. I rushed out before breakfast to take a few pictures during the golden hour. Back in plenty of time for our breakfast at nine. The breakfasts are excellent, a good Welsh/English breakfast, plenty of cereals. juices, pastries, and cooked fish delicacies. R made a mistake (for me) asking for Gluten Free toast for us both. So, my Welsh breakfast arrived without the fried bread, toast, sausage, and black pudding. A bit disappointing. This mistake was not repeated by R.
After breakfast we had our Wednesday Zoom call with the SadGits. We sat outside the hotel in the bright blue sky chatting to our friends across the world. I think we set a trend, when we left there were many others ordering cakes and coffee (not that I was allowed any cake).
Today we walked around the Chinese Lake, admiring the trees and reflections. We also visited the new motor-home camping spot which Portmeirion has built. It was very nice. All pitches have hedges delineating them. All pitches have power. There is even a charger for those coming in an electric camper. It is the price which would put us off. The price does include entry to the village, so maybe they are expecting people to stay only a couple of nights.
Again, we had some G&Ts back in our suite, while watching yet another episode of The Prisoner. At 7 we headed over for our supper.
