Unsere Route führte uns durch den Snowdonia Nationalpark in Wales. Sehr bergiges Land und damit eine interessante Route und unglaubliche Ausblicke auf hohe Berge und malerische Seen.
Reserve is by the estuary overlooking Conwy Castle. Friendly staff who advised us on the best telescope to get. We ended up buying another tripod too (see the kit in the photo). Great quality telescope enabled us to see loads including Beautiful lapwings, Bar Tailed Godwits, Tufted Ducks and Dunlins.Read more
Wie cool ist das at the Irish Sea...
Got to visit a sheep farm in northern Wales operated by Gareth Wyn Jones...a local farmer trying to find ways to make sheep farming profitable and useful in the current economy. Honest, genuine, and forward thinking in his views. Great guy, and great time!😊
A lovely day exploring such a lovely area of Wales. Left our fairly rustic accomodation in search of a laundromat as washing machine not working! We drove about 39 minutes to Llandudno where we anticipated finding the one on the Internet. To our surprise this was a huge town on the coast with a whole strand of hotels and shops. There were cars everywhere and crowds of people on very narrow streets. We drove around but had little hope of finding a laundramat as the streets were so busy, and narrow and all the signage was in Welsh! We carried onto Conwy, a much smaller and quieter town characterised by a huge castle and castle walls that surrounded the town except for the sea frontage. We had our left over tea with us so found a spot to eat it, which was lovely. We headed into the castle and every turn was amazing. We actually found it more impressive than Edinburgh Castle as older and more to see, even though no guides and a lot less people. Really worth a visit. We then walked down to the pier to find Britain’s smallest house. Not only was it small but so was the lady outside so I looked like a giant! We carried onto a very small village only 4 miles from where we are staying and located a good laundramat. While our washing went round I got rounder by eating yet another gorgeous scone, this time at the quaintest little house covered in ivy with very low ceilings and heaps of character. After picking up our washing we returned to the cottage to organise a parcel of “heavy gifts” to send home. We then wandered into town for dinner and a lovely drink- and good wifi at a bar. Ireland tomorrow.Read more
We stopped in a little Welsh town with the longest name of any town in the world, used the restroom and had our passport stamped. Arriving in Conwy at lunch, we ate fish and chips, then toured the castle. We arrived at the Quay Hotel about 4:30 pm. I took a nap until we ate supper at 7:00 pm with Jerry and Carol from New Hampshire. After supper I set up the tripod on the terrace outside the bar to take time exposures of Conwy Castle lighted up at night.Read more
Left bath nice and early knowing we had a big day ahead , drove to Tintern Abbey, it is near the banks of the River Wye, stunning place , interesting drive there as there was a road diversion and ended up on a tiny road and getting stuck on it as a family had the road blocked moving an enormous oven, lol so what do we do.... get out and have a chat . We then hit the road once again off to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Wrexham, It is an 18 arched stone and cast iron structure and is used for narrow boats etc, it was amazing an another beautiful spot, We then drove on to our home or the next 2 nights, the Eagle hotel in Llanrwst, beautiful hotel. Early dinner and more new beers for Derek.Read more
