I went on an 18 mile cycle ride this morning around Cardiff Bay and on to Penarth. HERE are some photos that I took. :D

Looks like a great place to ride, Tony, and at least the weather brightened up for you today. :D

These, as I said when I first saw them, are wondeful pictures. Hardly a dud in the whole lot, and some highly unusual "art" type photos. Loved the sun and the crane shot, and the sparkle on the sea. Somebody (Tony says from Sweeden) has the bluest boat I've ever seen.

I'm sorry for the cold--but climbing those hills must have been a real effort on foot--though coming down (especially on a bike) would have been "exciting". I'm not surprised at all that you ended up having worked up a fine sweat by the time you finished your ride/walk.

:lol: Somehow there seemed to be more 'up' hills than 'down' ones. :lol:

Unfortunately, I couldn't get any more photos of the 'Supermoon' for reasons I explained in another thread. I did manage to get these sunset photos from Brighton Beach however. :D
