Cattle on the Brecon Canal

Although the Brecon to Monmouthsire canal is only 35 miles long it runs through some beautiful countryside.
Much of this is in the Brecon Beacons National Park. We occasionally stop overnight near the canal and walk along a section of it. Years ago when the children were small we found a spoil heap from where the canal had been dredged and they had all sorts of fun digging up clay pipes and bottles. I think we gave them to  Ysgol Y Bannau, The Welsh Medium School in Llanfaes. I also presented the headmaster John Edwards with a painting when we left. It was a great little school which is no longer there.

The view here is near Brynych showing Pen y Fan and Corn Ddu in the background.

Today I am doing a bit of sketching after taking the dog out and Alex is having a well earned rest!
