We are off to Wales for the week. Looking forward to some different scenery. On the agenda is some train journeys, castles, the Mach Loop and beer. I have heard that they have the internet there and mobile phones work too! :D

Today we have been getting stuff ready and camera gear is all packed. Wife is busy dismantling the kitchen sink just in case they don't have one in the house we are renting! She isn't going to be without home comforts.

Had some nice weather yesterday. Bit cloudier today. The inside of the entrance hall at Penrhyn Castle reminded me of Darth Vader's lost cousin!

It goes without saying that I had to look up what this word means and I found: “Saint Mary’s Church in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool and the Church of Saint Tysilio of the red cave”.
Although this place name looks like a tongue twister, its meaning is rather poetic.

Beautiful pictures, Glen. :)

I had wondered where the station was and realised we had been past it twice (stupid sat nav). The village was originally known as Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll But in the 1860s changed the name as an early marketing stunt.

Waited for planes at the Mach Loop but didn't see anything. Not sure if it was to do with the weather or the time. Today, we saw a few Red Arrows going in that direction. The picture below is from one of the castles we visited. Weather has been good if not hot. Current beer tally is 32 bottles and 19 different beers (all locally brewed).

Last couple of days has been castles. The picture below was taken from Conwy castle. Really nice place and had a great day there. Not been to this area since 1969 when I 11! Been a nice relaxing week.

The fun will be sorting the photos and video when we get home. Oh, and finding room for the beer....
