Esther had a day out today, visiting some antiquities! She went to Castell Henllys Iron Age fort, where once upon a time Mrs Human dug holes in the ground. There are reconstructed roundhouses to look into!
Inside one, she thought she might have found a cheese, or a wedding cake, but it turned out to be a grindstone for grain. And she saw a pole lathe, a bit like my lathe, only more rustic.
Esther likes the pattern of the reeds in the thatch, it appeals to her design eye.
After all the looking around, she was quite peckish, and so were the humans, so they were glad of the nice cafe, which served some rather super cake!
Then it was on to another ancient monument at Pentre Ifan, How clever those old humans were to get that great big stone balanced up there!
The field banks were very pretty with flowers. The bluebells were especially pretty.
After all that, it was time for a late lunch – a lovely filled baguette – and then the drive back. A lovely day.
