Knowing my interest in retro retail signage my friend and minigolf rival Martyn Williams sent me over this snap of the retro signage at the Iceland supermarket in Port Talbot.
I don't know how I missed seeing it when I was in Port Talbot for the Welsh Doubles Championship last year!?
Port Talbot and the seaside bit of it at Aberavon are well worth a visit. I had a brilliant stay on the seafront in May 2019.
I'm really looking forward to returning to Wales when it's safe to do so. 2020 is the first year in ages that I haven't had at least a day trip to the country.
I spotted an Iceland with pre-year 2000 branding while on holiday in Wales in 2018. That store is in Holywell, North Wales.

Many thanks to my friend, minigolf rival and local Martyn Williams of the Welsh Minigolf Club for sending me these snaps from the course.

Playing the course
We played the 18-hole dinosaur-themed Tee-Rex Adventure Golf course last August. How times change.
It was the 916th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.
On that visit we enjoyed a round with Martyn and our old friends and minigolf rivals Cindy and Jas Kukielka.

A visit to the Tee-Rex Adventure Golf course at Cardiff Golf Centre.
On our trip to South Wales we made a visit to the Tee-Rex Adventure Golf course at Cardiff Golf Centre in Old St Mellons.
The 18-hole dinosaur-themed Adventure Golf course became the 916th visited on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

We had a fun competition on the course and there were some very close scores on the tricky layout.
At the end of the round I came out the winner by one-shot on 40(+4). Martyn, captain of the Welsh Minigolf Club, and Emily both hit 41(+5) and required a play-off.

The sudden-death play-off began on hole 1. After nether player could be separated after three plays of the hole the play-off moved to hole 2 where Emily shot a three and Martyn hit a two for the win.

Jas finished the game in fourth place with a round of 45(+9), with Cindy in fifth spot on 48(+12).
