Today, I spent the morning and early afternoon shopping and doing gardening-type worthy things. By about 3.30, the sun was still shining, so I took myself off for a short ride. I went to Llys-y-frân reservoir. As reservoirs go, this is a fairly small one, but it's an attractive location and only about a 20-mile round trip.

The flow of water over the 100-foot dam comes down the concrete surface like a lace curtain:

And here's a view of the lake from the viewing point on the other side.

The road goes down a steep hill, past the base of the dam, and then climbs with a couple of tight hairpins to a car park. It's a brief, but enjoyable, ride, and it certainly blew away the cobwebs. Although it isn't what you would call 'warm' yet, the roads are dry and there is some fun to be had.

Now, back to serious stuff ...
