DAY ONE – Cardiff and The Arrival
The weekend we had all been waiting for had finally arrived and with it the promise of sunshine! Forty-six travellers left the bay by coach, initially for Cardiff where we enjoyed lunch in the sun and a stroll around the City. Some visited the Castle and shops. A definite air of anticipation due to the impending nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle the following day.
Leaving Cardiff, we set off for the next leg of our journey, to Swansea and the Marriott Hotel. We were not disappointed with the service and rooms, all agreed it was everything we could wish for as we enjoyed the comfort of the facilities, or had a short stroll before we convened in the dining room for our 7pm dinner slot. Three courses each night – would we ever walk this off?
