Allright, it’s not a crystal clear, inviting river that says “rest your feet awhile and bathe in me” but the Taff can be quiet pretty
There is an artwork like the[url=http://www.walesonline.co.uk/whats-on/arts-culture-news/cardiff-launch-very-field-poppies-11310199] poppy fields down Cardiff Bay [/url]to represent the men of the Welsh Fusiliers who died in the Somme. It lights up at night, so is better viewed then
There is a forest on the other side of the valley that doesn’t seem to have any paths, so today Bruno and I set out to explore it. We found the old railway track which led eventually to this closed up tunnel. I’m pretty certain a species of vampiric beasts live in here, coming out at night to feast on the locals.
I tried to find a path over the top of the tunnel, but it became very narrow and then disappeared altogether. There was a steep 300 foot drop the other side which Bruno and I found ourselves sliding down at one point, so I abandoned and turned back.
There is a beer festival at the local, so Bruno insisted we stop in to try it out
Daughter and I played penalties in the goal today on the field. You can see Castell Coch framed in the background
Met up with Simon Horrocks and Andrew Smith of the OU tonight for some beers. I joked it was like an ou version of last of the summer wine.
David Kernohan & Viv Rolfe were in town to see some jazz so joined us for a pint too.
Was on campus again today filming the video sequences for the open course based on my book The Digital Scholar.
Daughter and I went to see this at the New Theatre tonight. It was fantastic, really funny. Not ‘oh look aren’t we smart laughing knowingly at Shakespeare” funny, but genuinely laugh out loud funny. Daughter loved it. I wonder what current comedy will still be as good 400 years hence?
You can’t move in my area for old viaducts. I’m a sucker for old structures being reclaimed by nature so this is a good thing.
To my surprise the fern in my downstairs loo is still going strong two years after purchase.
