We accidentally set off an hour early. I'd worked out (and written down on my route notes) that we should set off at 10.50 am. But when G started asking "was I ready yet?" instead of checking the time and saying, "We don't need to leave for another hour," I said, "Nearly!" and so we left rather earlier than planned.
As it happened, it meant that I could eat my sandwiches peacefully in the car park and have a short walk to explore the path and cycle way that follows the line of the old railway. I was over half an hour early, but it was better than having to hurry and arriving absolutely on time. Though the journey went according to plan, I hadn't reckoned on only being able to find a parking space at the very furthest point of the very large car park and that Dept 20 was at the very furthest end of the hospital. My phone says I walked 2 miles!
(I've used my bison picture for this post because to get to Wrexham we drove past the Rhug Estate where they farm bison for meat.)
