Cilgerran Castle and Cardigan

On Sunday we headed towards Cardigan and stopped at Cilgerran Castle on the way. They were having a reenactment of medieval times which was really interesting. 

 This fellow told us all about the different types of arrows used and how to make the quite complicated bows.

 We had a great chat to the monk/doctor inside the castle. You certainly wouldn't have wanted to have toothache in the Middle ages or any other ailments either.
 The monks were the scribes in that time too so we had a go at writing with a quill.

There were archery demonstrations too and Penny and Bruce had a go and did very well.

 We then headed into Cardigan for our roast lunch at a very yellow pub! It was really delicious. We wandered around  Cardigan castle. In the gift shop there were these quilts on display. The top one is knitted.

 In the afternoon we headed to Poppit beach and had a walk in the windy weather. The tide was way out.

 The life saving club (like our Nippers) were having a carnival.
