Yes, I know, I haven't posted for about 4 months. This was because of our major personal project which I mentioned briefly in my last post.

That personal project is now complete – we have sold our house and moved about 230 miles west of where we were living near the Essex coast to the English/Welsh border and now live in the small market town of Knighton in Powys, Wales. It is so close to the border that our railway station is in England.

We have been here just 3 weeks and have lots to explore. You may know that in the very ancient maps the legend 'Here be dragons' was often applied to areas that had not been explored so I suppose it's apt in that respect (we haven't explored it yet) and also because the Welsh emblem is a dragon (we haven't met him yet).

We had to make a trip to the County Council offices in Llandrindod Wells and by chance chose a sunny day to do so. Some of the views on the way were breathtaking (didn't have my camera). There is also a long distance path, called Offa's Dyke Path, which starts on the South Wales coast and travels about 150 miles to the north coast passing through Knighton on the way. We are hoping to explore some of that – possibly not all 150 miles of it.

I am hoping to start taking photographs soon so that I can show you what it's like around here. You can't wait can you? smilies
