    Go for a walk around Townhill. That’ll soon cure you.

    (The beach is lovely on a nice day. You sound like you’re in the best bit. Visited Gower yet? That’s lovely too.)

    Cycling up to Mumbles in this weather for an ice cream (or pint in The Pilot), how lovely :)

    (If you did fancy a Cardiff trip I would try my best to finally be a bit urban sociable :))

    Mumbles lost the iconic "Mermaid" pub some years ago (it burned down , along with some Dylan Thomas memorabilia) - spent ages trying to find it with my eldest some years back , as I wanted him to have an under age pint in there - (as I did , back in the day) .....in Swansea terms , "west is best" , along with total avoidance of the High Street at any time , and Wind Street on piss-up nights. (bar the "No-Sign Wine Bar", for devastating Harvey Wallbangers , again under age)

    Thank you for the indulgence .....

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    The mumbles mile is not the same either, in the 80s , you had to do about 12/13 pubs and end up over refreshed at Cinderella's

    Even more pubs in the mid 1970's - too many 18th Party celebrations that way , - to end up in Tiffany's or the Surf House. Sorry about the nostalgia- but great fun. The "Antelope" was always good fun.

    The morning afters were not ...

    We used to drink "lager top" , and if in funds - Pils (bottled) , - some people drank the drink of the devil "rum and black" - or God forbid "whisky and pep"

    Glad to leave the 1970's for that purpose alone. Not so , for other reasons .....:)
