Trip to S.W.Wales

 

 Welsh landscape

Today, we travelled down from NW England to SW Wales. This entailed navigating through a mix of weather conditions ranging from heavy rain, blustery winds and, finally, clear skies with direct sunlight.

About 90pct of the trip was undertaken through the Welsh countryside and landscapes, along backroads, through rural villages and along the cliffs of Cardigan Bay. Some of the best views were obtained as travelled along a single track backroad which took us deep into a rural environment.

Micro chapel (place of worship)

Tonight we are staying at a charming period inn at a small village the location of which positions us well for tomorrow's planned visit to an ancient prehistoric stone circle which the experts have determined served as the inspiration for the famous Stonehenge monument in southern England.
