Thursday 11 August
Drove to Monmeath in Wales to spend part of the day with Marilyn, discuss family history etc. We then continued to Cardiff.
Friday 12 August
Another grey overcast day with occasional drizzle but fine at first so decided to explore Bute Street while the weather held.
Pierhead Building for an exhibition on the area including an excellent short film on the history of the wharf area. When we were in Cardiff the building was being renovated and covered with scaffolding. The Pierhead Building has been a significant building in the Cardiff Bay docks area since 1897. The guide recommended a walk around the dock area and when we said that we planned to visit Penarth she told us how to walk there via the barrages - an interesting walk.
