Good to meet you in Cardiff. Glad you had a good time. The treasured pheasant is on display at home.
For you interested types, Castell Coch is just north of Cardiff, it was a Norman ruin rebuilt by the Marquis of Bute at the end of C19. He owned Cardiff docks and a lot of coal. He also built exrensions to Cardiff castle in the same fairy-tale style. The interiors are gorgeous examples of a British take on Art Nouveau, worth a visit.
Oh, Sorch, it's always 5 o'clock somewhere.
