Walking up the hill, this is the first glimpse of Margam Castle....
Today is a small Kite Festival, and we have come to join a handful of people flying their kites on the grounds in front of the castle. Not the best flying weather, with only an intermittent light breeze, but it was fun.
Some stalls selling kite equipment.
The year before last, there were loads of these stalls.
The Recession seems to be hitting everyone very hard.
The bushes in the grounds were in full bloom and looked lovely.
Kites flying above the ruins of the old monastic chapel of Our Lady on the hillside above the castle and the medieval Abbey church which is still in use for Anglican worship.
Some more shots of the Castle. Next time we visit, I must take internal shots of the Great Lantern tower, which is lovely.....
No shots of us flying our kites, as I couldn't fly and photograph at the same time :-)
