I have spent some time over the past two days playing with Adobe Lightroom 2. This is an immense improvement over Lightroom 1 – which I loved and have used extensively ever since it ‘grew’ out of Pixmantec RawShooter – a previous favorite of mine. I used the new gradient tool in this image which […]
Today was our last day with Claire so we went into the Gower to get some Salt Marsh Lamb to take home. They are based at Weobley Castle. We then had lunch at a local pub. On the way back to Mumbles we passed through Reynoldston where we saw many sheep sheltering from the sun. […]
We started today by driving to Llangennith at the end of the Gower to visit a produce market. We got some Gower Salt Marsh Lamb to try tonight. After a tea and a some cake (very good) we then went to Rhosilli Beach nearby. Here Robert and Claire flew the kite Maria brought last time […]

We then went into the Brecon Beacons and had lunch, there were storms over Pen-y-fan.
Penderyn Whisky was the next point of call, where we all purchased […]

This evening we went to see Mama […]

Today we went down to Harpenden. Mum was having a party to celebrate here 80th birthday.
