A few weekends ago Anthony took me to St. Fagans National History Museum
(aka The Museum of Welsh Life). It is a rather large place, many buildings of interest have been relocated to the museum grounds including a small Celtic village.
There are some really nice carved dragon chairs in the main museum, a Welsh dragon dress, and a large ornate harp. Of course I took photos of all the dragons :)( Photos under cut )
We need to go back at some point, we only managed to see about half of what they have there.
I got my manga from Waterstones, but only 1 of the 2 volumes was ready to pick up. We popped into the Childline store to say hi to Anthony's mum who volunteers there on a Saturday and I spotted Folklore, Myths and Legends of Britian, a Reader's Digest book from 1973. Its a bit battered but all the pages seem to be there, so that's another one for the hoard.
Anthony brought Dragon Wars today so we're watching that at the moment. The CG beasties look pretty cool, especially Buraki and the Bulcos, although the Dawdlers screamed Gungan shield generators at me (Star Wars Ep 1, BSWGE!) I kinda wanted to take part in the destruction of Los Angeles, it really appealed to my "Raah, Stomp, Crush" side :)
And now I've fallen in love with the celestial dragon. I really enjoyed the film and am very glad I've seen it now, but then I love myths and legends. We're watching the special features now.
BSWGE! = Bloody Star Wars gets everywhere! Something I seem to say a lot, I blame Kate, but only because I can.
