What we did on our "holiday" -- Day 5

On the Thursday of our "holiday" I demanded a rest day, partly because the weather was drizzly but mostly because I was feeling really really tired.

We sat around relaxing all morning, had some toast, cheese and fruit for lunch and then ambled into the town centre to look round the museum. This is in the building that was originally built as a music hall, but when we were students here in the early 70s, it was a cinema. In those days Aber had three cinemas, all tatty and all very cheap. I saw more films in my student days than ever before or since.

Sadly this interesting stack on the coast near Aberystwyth no longer exists. It was washed away in a storm in the winter of 1930-31. It is another Named Rock. Craig yr Wy (Egg Rock). Unlike some Named Rocks, it's easy to see how this one got its name.

We saw and photographed some mineral specimens from local mines.

We then ate at the Byrgyr (Welsh spelling of burger) restaurant before walking through to to the newly built M&S to do a food shop.
