As it happened...it rained all day but that really didn't stop us from having fun.
We packed a picnic, picked up a few companions and off we went to Margam Park thanks to a recommendation from a one of my Mum's friends :)
It was a bargain too, free entry to the park and only £4 for parking all day.
Despite the rain there was quite a bit to look at, beautiful gardens, a farm trail (where i saw some cousins of mine), a castle, a fairy tale village, a lake with some ducks, pretty ruins, Go Ape tree tops adventuring (which we didn't do this time). Basically, something for every one.
We couldn't look around the castle too much on this visit as there were signs around that said there was filming going on for a Tv show called Da Vinci's Demons.
