Looking through my pictures and thinking what I should write about today, I came upon some local scenes I realised I hadn’t posted.
These pictures were taken during August, we had our friends Cicely and Trevor staying with us at the time and as they were travelling back the following day we decided to spend it at a leisurely pace by staying local and taking a picnic to one of the nearby lakes.
Its a stunning location and illustrates well the magnificent scenery we are surrounded with. Out to the east, we have the natural wild beauty of the mountains and then by simply turning to the west you take in the breathtaking views overlooking the coastline of Cardigan Bay. I feel the beauty in this part of Wales is unsurpassed in the British Isles.
You know! I sometimes catch myself wishing we had better shopping facilities locally, but then, I only have to stop and look around me and I’m soon reminded what I truly do prefer.
I hope you too enjoy my local scenes.... If you click on the pictures you'll see finer detail. The second picture below shows our picnic spot, you'll see our red cool box.
Reflection Through The Seasons
I live in a small Welsh village which is situated in the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park. Its an area of true outstanding natural beauty. We have the Cambrian mountains to the east of us and the coast of Cardigan Bay out to the west. My husband and I moved to Wales from The Cotswolds in England 19 years ago. We bought the old village Police Station, which we have worked tirelessly renovating ever since. You could say its a real labour of love. I have retired after working many years in the travel business, this now leaves me free to pursue the many things in life that I enjoy.
