St. Fagan's National History Museum

This past Saturday I spent the day with two new friends, Evelyn and Alexandra who are both from Germany. We took advantage of the rare, sunny fall weather and walked around the grounds and through the castle and exhibits of St. Fagan's: National History Museum (pronounced: St. Fag-ens) and the Museum of Welsh Life.

Bile Beans.... I wonder what some of my medical friends would say about that?

We weren't given the correct bus stop, and missed our bus back to Cardiff Central Train Station. While we were sad to have to wait an hour and a half for the next bus, we were thankful that it wasn't raining. To pass the time we wandered around the cemetery of this quaint churchyard, and then enjoyed a pint at nearby Plymouth Pub.

Notice the double letter tiles and the Y with the low, 3 point score.
