We went to Wales. I hired a car on Friday and we left early on Saturday. We reached Llandeilo by midday. Along the way we saw many fields of solar panels and wind turbines.
Masking and other restrictions are now not bothered with at motorway services, I only saw 1 person wearing a mask over the 4 stops we made there and back.
Here are some pictures from Llandeilo, starting with the Fire Station:
A new renovation project underway at the old market hall:

On Sunday we drove over to Llandovery. There was a lot of noise in the distance as some sort of event for bikers was underway, and we passed many on the journey. We went in a dining room on the other side of a Ball Room not in use during the day:
