The City of Cardiff Community Brass keeping the tradition of weekend brass band music on Penarth Esplanade this afternoon

After a week of grey skies and showers Summer made an overdue return to Penarth this afternoon.

On the Esplanade the City of Cardiff Community Brass Band was providing the traditional weekend extra-mural concert outside the Penarth Pier Pavilion.

This passing horse enjoyed the music so much it joined in – beating time with its front right roof.

A passing horse liked the music so much appeared to want to take over conducting the band and  began beating time with its right front hoof – much the the amusement of passers by and Piermaster Peter Andrews.

Meanwhile out on the sea the MV Balmoral was having a rather better day of it.

After winds and heavy swell had disrupted some sailings earlier in the week, today the little ship – as much a part of Penarth as the Pier  itself –  managed to carry out all her  scheduled trips.

The forecast for tomorrow is for westerly winds and the same kind of sunny spells as today

    Glorious day – now if only they could get rid of the cars from the esplanade.

    My favourite coffee spot is the cafe below the Fig Tree, in the old lifeboathouse. Purely because I don’t need to sit and look at exhaust pipes.
