The joy of holidays


I've recently returned from a holiday in Wales with a couple of good friends. We had - amazingly - much better weather than it had been at home, with only one day of heavy rain plus another sharp shower when we happened, fortuitously, to be in a café. Mind you, we spent a fair bit of time in cafés, coffee and cake being, in our view, a major component of a good holiday!

The photo above is from one of the stops we made on our outward journey. It's a lovely area near Aberystwyth, known as Bwlch Nant yr Arian, where there are walks and mountain biking trails. The brilliant sunshine made the lake and mountain scenery look spectacular, though it was actually extremely cold. We stretched our legs with a walk around the lake, enjoying the signs of spring in the young bilberries and bright foliage.

  2. The west coast of Wales is beautiful. However,facing the Irish Sea it can also be wild, windy and very wet.

  5. Isn't it wonderful to see the bright green of new leaves unfurling, and so nicely contrasted against the blue sky. Your holiday sounds like a perfect one to me . . . coffee and cake being very important to its success!
