Referendum day

We went for a walk in and near the village of Bow Street today, 23 June 2016, an historic day in the history of the U.K. 
BBC Wales journalist and cameraman Craig Duggan films outside the village hall, serving as a polling booth in the referendum of 23 June 2016.  He told us the result would be very close.  One man drove by and shouted 'LEAVE!'.  Another drove past and yelled 'REMAIN!'
The village hall
Inside the polling station, people prepare to cast their vote.  Decision time:  should Britain remain in or leave the European Union?

On our walk, we stopped at the Crafts Centre for a coffee.
On our way back from our walk, we strolled down the field near Tom and Mag's house.
Later, we drove to Bwlch Nant yr Arian to witness the daily feeding of the Red Kites.
Some time back, Red Kites were on the brink of extinction but they have been restored in good numbers.  Jean, Carolyn and Neil watch the feeding.
Afterwards, we drove to Devil's Bridge.  Here, you see the original 11th century foot bridge.  Above it is the bridge of 1708, built for the horse and carriage.  In 1901, the top bridge was constructed for the new age of the motor car.  It's called Devil's Bridge because legend has it that the first bridge was built by the devil himself.
