Missed the boat in Cardiff

Had we arrived in Cardiff at 2.30 as expected, or even 3pm, our plan was to get a taxi down to the Waterfront. We had been in touch by email with Capn' Ben Slater of the Cardiff Water Bus. Their new ship Princess Royal has a lift and can acccomodate electric wheelchairs. Their last 45min trip around Cardiff Bay was leaving at 3.30pm. Alas we are much too late.

We get out into the fresh air. Crossing over into Mill Lane our ears are assailled by loud music and raucous shouts. There is a strong smell of alcohol in the air.
We work our way around the pavement drinkers and find a quieter spot near the Royal Arcade. Giovanni's serve a delicious glass of orange juice.
