Cardiff Bay and Ray Mears
My husband & I had one of those rare moments together without children, on Sunday, when we went to Cardiff Bay. I love Cardiff, but had never visited the bay before.
Unusually, there is a Norwegian Church in Cardiff Bay! This was once a church for Norwegian sailors. The children's author, Roald Dahl was born in Cardiff and christened in the Norwegian church.
The church is now an art gallery and coffee shop, and they do the most amazing hot chocolates with whipped cream and marshmallows.
We popped into the Pierhead, which is the large red brick building on Cardiff Bay. Inside, there are some beautiful Victorian tiles:
|Chevron fireplace anyone?|
|The tiled stairway, even the balustrade is tiled!|
We were due to see Ray Mears talking in the Millenium Centre in the evening. The building is beautiful, both inside and out.
|These architectural lights are scattered throughout the centre at different heights|
|The lettering from inside the building at night.|
Ray Mears was a brilliant and extremely interesting speaker with tales of bushcraft and encounters with the wild, speaking about conservation and tracking animals. I would recommend it to anyone.
