Sharing some pics from Wales …

My husband has kept these hidden on his drive until now, so I hadn’t even seen them!

 

These two pictures were taken on a nothing of a road from Devil’s Bridge (east of Aberystwyth) through the Elan Valley to Cilmeri.  The road was protected by a cattle guard on either end, was really only one lane (albeit paved), and we saw two cars and a million sheep for the two hours we were on it.

 

The rock is broken over the English translation and at first I couldn’t believe what it said.  It is at ‘Llywelyn’s Well’, which you reach by following a narrow path and some stairs behind his monument at Cilmeri.  It should read “Legend has it that this is the well where the head of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd was washed.”

Dolwyddelan and Dolbadarn:

    Oh, I’m so glad you found Dolbadarn Castle – I kept meaning to send you an email to ask you if you had been to it because I only discovered it on this year’s trip and I’ve been going to Wales for years!!
