The following morning we decided to blow away the cobwebs by taking a long walk in the impressive grounds of Tredegar Park near Newport.
We then made our way back up to the Midlands and stopped over at the pictuesque town of Stratford upon Avon. We took a walk along the banks of the River Avon where the wildlife includes numerous Ducks, Geese and Swans.
We also took a few moments to watch the narrow boats navigate one of the local locks.
We then paid a visit to Mandy's mum, Edith, who was on fine form recalling some stories from Mandy's childhood.
