As we had relatives in Saundersfoot, Wales, we hired a car and drove to Wales to spend New Years eve with them. It is the first time we have seen a big frost that stayed on the ground all day.
New Years eve was a great experience as Saundersfoot is a small coastal village in Wales, and all the locals turned out for the celebration. Everyone proceeded to the local pub, which was a delightful, warm cosy pub, where we all ate dinner. Then on to the harbour foreshore in the freezing zero temperatures to celebrate New Years eve. We retained an "inner glow" by drinking copious quantities of Jack Daniels.
On New Years day many townsfolk turned out to go for a swim in the freezing sea. Needless to say, we observed from the shore.
