It was a really good course and I think I am slowly improving. I have finally graduated to the top class and we spent the entire two days speaking nothing but Welsh. We even kept the conversation entirely in Welsh when we left the classroom for our morning tea break and the lunch break.
I've got out of the habit of early morning drives and the first day was bitterly cold overnight. I had taken the precaution of putting the covers on the car, so there wasn't all that much scraping to do to free the windows from ice. It was clear but cold at home, but I ran into thick mist near the lake and at morning tea break on the first day, the trees were white frost skeletons and you couldn't see across the lake at all. It was like something out of a fantasy film. But by lunch time, the sun had burned off the mist and this is what the lake looked like.
Deceptively sunny, it was actually pretty cold.
And another view showing more of the lake.
Of course the sun only lasted one day and it clouded over on Thursday night so that Friday was much warmer, but miserable and wet.
