Wicked Welsh Weekend.

The Friday was the last operational day of the Newport Transporter Bridge so 5 Imps set off to celebrate the day, many thanks to the staff for making us very welcome, and showing us round. See Pics A nice run back via Caerleon to see the Roman amphitheatre.

On Saturday we set off on a similar route to last year stopping at Landovery for lunch and the Sheep Festival. See Pics The route then went up to Abergwesyn and the Epynt Ranges with some fantastic scenary and views. See Pics

On Sunday we had the show and shine line up See Pics and then we set off for home, we didnt get home under our own steam, but thats another story.

There are a lot of pictures on this page, but you should have seen the great ones we didnt use. A big thanks to all the Gurns for a great weekend.
