A little bit of Wales

Hello there ... Can you believe it's the 1st July? You wouldn't think so by the weather here ...

How was your weekend?
DH and I went to Wales on Saturday ... it's only about an hours drive and it was really enjoyable ...  This time of year the views are just stunning ... 


Green as far as the eye can see, and if you like castles ... Wales has lots of them!

We took in the street market at Mold and stopped for a light lunch ... then drove on to Ruthin ... A place full of history with it's castle and beautiful old buildings ... it's hardly changed since medieval times


Don't you think it's funny seeing the tarmac road and the yellow 'no parking' lines alongside those buildings ... 
This large rock is known as King Arthur's Stone


The plaque says that King Arthur beheaded his rival (both in love and war) on this rock - take a look at the building


This is now a bank!
And look at this roof full of windows ...


This is Myddleton Arms built in the 17th Century and known as the eyes of Ruthin

From there we went on to the lovely Betws-y - Coed ... 


then Abergele and home ... stopping off to visit my brother along the way ... 

Yep, it was a nice weekend 

I'll be back tomorrow for the new challenge at City Crafter 

Have a lovely day!

Since I will probably never travel to Wales, it was lovely to see your Pretty photos!

Chris said...

Lovely photos, Ros. We used to have a caravan in St Asaph and love the area. I think we saw every castle in North Wales in the few years we had the van!

Oh, is it Wales... I'd seen a photo similar to yours on the top, with the bridge and cottage, and wondered where this was... Love your photo way better by the way, it's gorgeous! And what a gorgeous place that is, the houses and nature, wow... Would love to visit England again very soon!

Take me along with you, I want to see beautiful places! I just love those English Tudor Style, awesome!

Barbara said...

What a wonderful day you've had! And after I had discovered as recently as in May that Yorkshire is well worth a longer visit, it seems that Wales is, too!

Michelle said...

Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos! Reminds me of my visit to England in 1998...I had such a great time sight seeing and shopping!!!

WOWW!!. One day, I'll be here to see all these gorgeous spaces, you live in a stunning country!. I love the walk so much. Yes, it is amusing seeing modern signage at historic places :). The bank makes me smile.
