a day in Hay

Well a good two hours in Hay on Wye- which is full of interesting corners and alleyways

It also has a good Thursday market, with a good range of stalls, so I'll be trying there. Being blunt, it is an area with money!! There are lots of interesting small shops apart from all the book shops!!!
I managed a mega-achievement....I did not even buy ONE book!!!!
Looking over Llangors lake, to the Brecon Beacons. There is a bronze age (i.e. "Celtic") lake village here which has rewarded its excavators with many artefacts
The road from Talgarth to Bwlch looking towards Mynydd Llangynidr , which I was about to drive over. It isn't easy to find a place to stop!
but I managed to stop in a gateway to a potato field!!
From the top of the main climb up from Llangynidr village, looking eastwards
then back North
and NorthWest-ish!
Then South over the plateau into which the Valleys have been eroded
