Welsh Wanderings

I'm back!  We've had a few lovely days away in Wales and as you can see from some of the photos it wasn't always raining!

We've seen lots of ......


 and Abbeys

We've walked along a few of these........

and seen lots of.........

 hills and mountains

and even been up one of them

on this little train

I've don't think I've ever seen so much Valerian

or so many Foxgloves on roadsides, on the edges of fields, by stone walls  and down by the sea

Hopefully, I'll be back with more later!  I'll also try and catch up with all your posts that I've missed whilst I've been away over the next few days but first there are piles of washing to do and we have to get ready for our old conservatory, which has a leaking roof, a damp wall and rotting window frames, to be taken down and a new one put up in its place, I'm not looking forward to the mess!  I may be gone sometime.


  1. Welcome back Rosie. It looks like you have had a lovely break in Wales. I hope that things go smoothly as they can with replacing your conservatory. I am sure it will all be worthwhile! x

  2. Looks like a wonderful holiday.
    And how nice... a new conservatory!!

  3. Your trip to Wales looks lovely Rosie and you were lucky with the weather. Hope your new conservatory goes in well and that you get much enjoyment from it.

  4. Wales is such a beautiful place to visit, all the castles, the rugged coast line, the open countryside. Your pictures are great.

  5. Glad you were OK with the weather! I was worried for you! I do think the press make things sound much worse than they are most of the time. xxxx

  6. I am so glad you enjoyed your trip to Wales.We consider ourselves very lucky to have ended up in North Wales with this beautiful countryside and heritage on our door step.I just have to try and master the language.I have missed three lessons.Monday might be a tad hard unless i get my books and tape out very quickly!

  7. Great photos! I recognise a few places there, look forward to hearing more.

  8. The second castle in Caernarfon, but is the first one Penrhyn?
    I definitely see Criccieth Castle and Cnicht.

  9. Thanks for your flying snapshot tour of Wales! I hope you'll be back with more detail when conservatory allows.

  10. Welcome back. It looks as if you managed to avoid some of the rain and you were lucky enough to see the mountains! Glad that you had a good break. Jx

  11. Thanks everyone, as always, for your kind comments:)
