"M"s mum wanted to see the black mountains, so I sorted out a route that we could drive which would hopefully give us some good views, and some narrow country lanes to go down.
We set out late morning and headed for Crickhowell, where we turned left and headed for Llanbedr, from there we headed up a single track road as far as we could which ran along side the Grwyne Fawr. At the very top was a Forestry Commission car park where we parked up and had a short walk.
After that we headed for Lllanthony and up pas Lord Hereford's Knob which had spectacular views which you can see below in the pictures!
From here we dropped down into Hay-On-Wye. We had a good walk around the town which is famous for its book shops. I must admit that I thought the town was larger, so was a bit surprised that it really was that small.
After a couple of hours of exploring the town we headed back to the camp site.
98 miles of driving around lanes today, the Pajero worked brilliantly, but what else did I expect!
Once we were back and after a cuppa, we decided that it was time to look into how the rear seats and the third row of seats fold down to make a bed. We started out by trying it with all three rows but it just didn't work. So we only used the last two rows, and to be honest it worked really well.
We thought that it could be useful for when we want to get away for a weekend, and to do some wild camping and not have to lug a massive shed behind us.
No plans for tomorrow yet, really all depends on the weather, which doesn't look too good at the moment!
Just outside of Hundred House, near our camp site
Cant see the wood for the trees!
The next set of pictures are taken from Lord Herefords Knob!
Confused with these road markings? On a street in Hay-On-Wye
It's Chilli tonight, "M" bought some scotch bonnet chilli's which I tried out last night on a burger. One whole one chopped up, its not just the Welsh Dragon spitting flames this morning so was my arse!
So on that note - till later....................
