One of the reasons I need to get the house finished is we desperately want to move out of Cardiff down west. It's complicated, as well as sorting my own side business I need to get a new job.
We drove up Thursday morning, I had the interview, then we had a little explore on the way back on Friday. I've never been to Aberystwyth before now, so it was as much a chance to see if the area was what we'd like as well as too interview for what sounded like a great job, helping to restore films for the archive. I don't think I got the post, as I would have heard Friday and didn't, unless I get a call today which I think is unlikely.
No worries though, if it wasn't to be, it wasn't to be. Whilst we were up that way, we did a whole tour of the coast from Aberystwyth to Borth, then down to Aberaeron. It was a whole stretch I've never seen before, and I have to say I was well impressed with the area.
Firstly Borth was quite strange, a long street with hotels and shops, the whole village seems to be laid out straight. Some lovely views and at low tide you get to see a petrified forest. Here's a few snaps, we didn't really explore far at all.
From there we visited Tal-Y-Bont and Bow Street, both nice little villages. Maybe just a bit to far north for my liking though. So, we circled back to Aberystwyth then went down the Cardigan Bay coast and stopped at Aberaeron, a place I've seen on TV many times but never visited. It was nice - just the sort of place I'd like to end up but could never afford. A few snaps from the harbour and town here for you.
I didn't actually take a lot of pictures in Aberystwyth, by the time the camera came out it was grey and overcast. I took a few on the promenade, this one of the Jazz Swingtet (sniggers) in full flow was my favourite.
Eh Dio! The sailboat photos are excellent!
Looks like you have a fun trip...
So..the flow deserves to be seen.
