A relaxing soak in the thermal pools tonight was just what we needed after a busy day. Only there for half an hour as we arrived late – but that is better than not at all.

These are the natural sulphur pools containing water straight out of the ground which is cooled with bore water to drop the temperature from 60C to 40C. The water is filtered during the day but the pools have to be emptied each night then filled afresh in the morning.

It was very quiet around the village and at the pools tonight – but that is much more enjoyable for us than Easter.
