    Needed the heater on though Bill but yes, nice blue sky and sunshine. Good enough for me :cool:.

    However, the day before. ........ 20190903_105649.jpg 20190903_105143.jpg

    Another fantastic road with lovely smooth tarmac, on route to Aberystwyth, roof down, stuck behind a hears at 35mph with my right arm getting wet with every sweep of the wipers. So I improvised a solution to that :whistle:.

    Erm no didn't think to record it Dave :rolleyes: but pretty sure we could find it again.
    It brought us out at lake Bala and we took the B road along the back of it as @miller1098 suggested, really good :).
    Then we got a wee bit lost, a good kind of lost though as the roads and scenery are so good pretty much where ever you go in that neck of the woods :D.

    Hi Bozzy, Something strange about the photo! You say towel on your right arm, it's your left, if you are driving the car is left hand drive. Think you must have a reversed image somehow. Nice picture though.

    No such thing as getting lost, it’s called taking the scenic route :D
