We went for a coastal walk, starting near Barry on the green lawns at The Knap, going down to the beach and trying to listen to the wind-up radio to catch Manchester United demolishing Arsenal. It was too windy to hear much: sail surfers out at sea.
It was a sparkling blue sky afternoon and we padded with care over the stones by the Jurassic limestone cliffs, with the big blocks of rocks and pavements.
We followed the Millenium Trail up through woods. Hips, haws and sloes are impressive this year – and crabapples – but the blackberries are really manky here.
Rhoose Point is the most southern part of Wales (the sign said).
