I had a few days away with the hubby & kids this weekend in Cardiff Bay. What a fab place, it has it all going on great architecture, good food, craft markets, exhibitions plus all the normal waterfront things like boat trips, ice cream and an old faithful carousel. We had a great time wondering about taking it all in visiting "Techniquest", "The Welsh Parliament Building" and "The Visitors Centre". The whole place is really well done and really quite trendy & cosmopolitan, not a tacky shop or amusement arcade in sight! As its only an hour along the M4 to the Gower we also had a day on the beach, in the sunshine, which was a bonus. I'd recommend it to anyone.
As well as enjoying the sights we also had fun with our new compact camera (Sony DSC H55) the one they advertise on tele with the sweeping panoramic feature. Its fab, you just stand, point and sweep around 180 degrees and voila a wide angle panoramic shot. We got a few funny looks doing it but the results are great!
