After a late breakfast, we drove to Cold Knap beach car park, west of Barry, then climbed from there up to the Coast Path and followed it to Porthkerry Country Park, about a mile along the coast. We had a coffee there, and were able to walk back along the beach, as the tide had gone out sufficiently to make it possible. By this time is was getting on for two, so we drove to a Co-op store on College Road Barry, and picnicked on sandwiches bought there before driving Owain to Cardiff Central station to catch a train back to Bristol.
We then drove to Homebase on Newport Road, to get some plant nutrient and a new weighing scales, as ours died last week, after decades of use. We also called at Curry's digital, so that I could browse the new acquisitions and sale stock, and buy a Bluetooth mouse to use with one of my PCs with a dearth of USB ports. At ten quid it's worth the effort of finding out if using a Bluetooth connection regularly is as good as should be.
