...from Wales! Hey, did you know that I am actually part Welsh? My beautiful Gran was born and bred in North Wales... and how I wish I had actually listened to her when she spoke in her mother tongue to me... if only I could speak this amazing language! Anyways... if you hadn't guessed, cyfarchion means greetings! I know, I sound dead clever... actually Mr Googles helped me! Rather than do a load of waffling (as is my wont) I thought I would just pop some piccies on of our experiences so far and do a "caption" for each... and here goes with our first stop on our trip, Llangollen.... **edit, after writing up the post... erm... I waffled... a bit... lol **
|Taken from the bridge over looking the River Dee|
And of course, a trip for us wouldn't be a proper trip without finding a railway... and a steam train...
|I wish I could take credit for this fab pic but alas, it wasn't me... Grim is an expert photographer|
Continuing on our journey, we arrived at Swallow Falls, Betws-y-Coed. This is truly stunning and sooooo noisy, very soothing at the same time though.
|Swallow Falls... natural beauty.|
As ever, I am easily distracted and saw this rock... this would make a faaaaab background stamp... whatch finks?
Indiginous to this area blooms the Snowdon Lily... I tried and tried to get a close up photo of this beauty... I will try again as they are pretty much growing all over... or maybe I shall just ask Grim to do it lol
|In the middle... there it is...|
Grim has this cool gadget that is a tripod for the camera but it has articulated legs (bit like mine haha) and he strapped it to the railings so we could pose a-front of the Falls....
And, as ever, why have sensible photo's when silly ones are much funnier... I seem to have adopted a "Beckham pout" for some reason... and Grim, well he looks like he is picking his teeth lol
And finally, a piccie of the scenery just before we got to Llanberis, which is where we are staying... in a lovely hotel that has a real, live, proper parrot in the bar. He is called George and he can sing and whistle and chatter away and now he knows how to say .... "ay-up George" teehee... I am going to try and get a photo of him later when I don't need to use the flash, I don't want to upset him!
|More of these pics to follow!|
Right, I shall away... I am fair pogged as we just ate a delicious dinner of gammon (with proper real chips no less) and it is time to get some sleepz... Thanks for looking... TTFN!
