    We stayed at a CL near Chepstow just inside the Welsh border. The journey from Walthamstow was very wet, but things brightened up for our arrival.
    The site was on a lush grassed field on a farm which was raising beef cattle. We pitched at the top of the field which the farmer advised was on more solid ground.
    We walked into Chepstow across fields in the rain. We visited the town a couple of years ago with Kirsty and it seemed to be thriving, however our visit revealed many shops on the high street closed. A large Tesco may have stripped the heart out of the town. As the rain abated we walked back along the Welsh Coast Path to our site - gettimg back just before the rain started again. It rained all night and we needed a tug out of the grass from the very friendly farmer to get off our pitch. Karen drove to Swansea whilst I kept abreast of the Rugby score in Japan. Could be interesting here next week if the Welsh beat the Boks.
