A little bit of Adventure

Who knew a person could find so much adventure in one spot! Along the way we were able to go down in a coal mine (which was really scary). You are lowered down in a small elevator down a very very narrow dark shaft. Then you get down to what feels like the bottom of the earth and it is so quiet down there! We had to wear little belts and hard hats with lights on the front which felt pretty silly up top but were really useful once down at the bottom. Besides being really dark it was freezing down at the bottom of the tunnels! The mine was no longer in use for coal production, but it was hard to imagine anyone having to work in those conditions every day for their whole lives.
The second piece of adventure that I had in Wales was doing something called 'Coastering.
Also, on the way to Swansea we visited the Dylan Thomas Boathouse and some other castles along the way (that's what the rest of the pictures are).
