Wedding and Waterfalls

I appear to have reached the point of growing up where my friends are starting to do silly things like getting married and having babies.  This summer seems to have been a steady stream of fancy invitations, and occasions where I can't get away with wearing shorts and flipflops (or better, freakshoes).

Last Saturday we celebrated Lucy's wedding.  For me, this mostly involved getting quite drunk, dancing badly, and covering everything I touched in purple glitter.  Oh, and pinching strawberries from the chocolate fountain to put in my Pimms, 'cos I'm classy like that.

Obviously that meant Sunday was a bit of a hungover write off...  although not so bad, as it gave me a chance to catch up with people in Stoke.

3 for the price of 2 on weekend days - Bank Holiday Monday was a more adventurous day, involving a walk in the Brecon Beacons.

No mountains this time - instead, waterfalls!

Sgwd yr Eira - the one you can walk behind!

5 miles of well signposted footpath, along the rivers Mellte and Hepste.  3 massive waterfalls on the Mellte, and one on the Hepste (pictured above). And beautiful weather.

Loads of other people doing the same thing - a fairly constant line of people waiting to walk under the falls (careful cropping on that photo to remove them all...)

And rather predictably, I took a lot of photos.  I could probably spend forever fiddling with shutter speeds taking pics of moving water :)
