I am posting a few pics just for the record and also to relive my memories - yes it did rain on and off - and yes the mists came down - but yes the sun did shine through in equal measure and we had a great time.
Click on the pics for a decent view - I only seem to be able to post this size on my blogs - if anyone has any suggestions as to what I need to do to get a larger pic I would appreciate your comment.
Wales never ceases to come through with unexpected places and special moments.
I booked with a local agency - so here is a little plug for them I have added a link - the house Llwyn-y-coed Isaf http://dioni.co.uk/llwyn-y-coed/ was adequate in comforts and the views were great - not so much for the camera though because every which way there was a huge pylon - in this pic - just on the horizon to the right !!
The house looked out onto what appeared to be reed beds
First day off was a tour round the little village of Trifriw - parking up and asking directions for the local walks - after a few false turns we arrived at the Fairy Falls - aptly named by the Victorians who were fascinated by these mythical creatures
What do you think of this - I think it is so pretty - I am hoping OH will make one for me he is good at working metal this one was on the hearth in the Ship Inn in Trefriw
Up and ready for another session - and to breath in the vigorous welsh air we decided on a visit to Conway - we have touched on this area before - but never spent a great deal of time in the actual town - the castle is not that big .. see below in the distance through the arch in the town walls
and here is a pic taken on a previous visit just to give you a better look
We sat and ate icecreams and soaked up the views
Day three - again going out with a blank canvas so to speak - with definite purpose in mind - we called in at a small garden centre and bought a couple of plants and just mentioned to the owner that we were out for a nice walk - so he pointed us in the direction of Llyn Crafnant - so that was that decision made - here is the result
how beautiful is that!
we walked right round the lake - quite a way but so worth it
bye for now - have a good week - Jane x
