|First of all, we stopped for a coffee at the small village of Betws-Y-Coed, which was about halfway along our journey to Caernarfon. We parked near this river with its falls and rocks and bridge. I could have stayed there all day.|
|I love Welsh signs!|
|Another place we had a brief stop was in the Llanberis Pass. I love dry-stone walls, ancient boundaries built from what was lying around readily to hand. My only knowledge of the Pass, before going there, was hearing it mentioned on winter weather reports saying that it was closed because of snow. It always seems to be one of the first in the country whenever we get any difficult weather. I couldn't help thinking that, at times like that, this little farmhouse must be a very bleak place to live. But it certainly is beautiful the rest of the time, if remote. |
|You can see that it was wet, dark and gloomy, but still impressive.|
|This is close to being the perfect landscape as far as I'm concerned.|
Next time, Caernarfon Castle. I promise!
