Warmth,Wales,Waterfalls,Williams-Ellis & Wonderland..

Last week, with the sun shining, we visited North Wales. The countryside looked stunning; the roads were superb and all was well with the world.

After visiting a waterfall ( more later ) and staying a night, near Barmouth, we made our way to our principal  reason for the journey, namely the charming village of Portmeirion in Gwynedd. It was created by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, between 1925 and 1975. It is now run by a charitable trust.


More details above.

Portmeirion came to the public eye with the TV series " The Prisoner "

See the opening sequences Here.Prisonerl

It proved to be a fascinating visit. Portmeirion has a ' wow factor ' which embraces you at every turn.
Here are just a few of the many photographs I took.

The last picture shows a stump of a tree into which coins have been inserted by visitors.

 My last picture of Portmeirion  shows the garden, complete with palm trees, in a radiant mood.

Well worth a visit.


On the our first day in North Wales, after a little bit of detective work with the map and computer, we found the 'Ddu and Coed' walk in the village of Ganllwyd,  in the Snowdonia National Park.
Within a short distance of crossing the main A470, which runs through the village; we were soon blessed with the River Gamian in full flow.

A refreshing walk in all aspects of the word.

So there we are; a really enjoyable break. Lovely Job.

Have a good week ahead; enjoy Nature.


PS The 'Robins' got a draw this week, so slowly getting better!
