the heart of snowdonia

Photos from a refreshing trip to Wales we had one weekend recently. We're lucky to live close enough to Snowdonia to go for the day although we haven't really explored this area at all so after this natured filled walk I hope we'll be going again.

This walk had it all really... streams, waterfalls, rivers. Mountains, fields, woodland. I love these twisty gnarled tree roots. There was a rope swing over the water, an idyllic place to be.

And this tree within a tree.

This is Floss looking like butter wouldn't melt shortly before she snaffled Mr P's sarnie. Very naughty girl.

After Mr P had been lugging Floss over these ladder stiles (lovely aren't they?) she nimbly climbed over one herself which made me giggle. Ah it's so good to get out in the fresh air.

Can you feel Autumn coming? I can sense it waiting in the wings.

Something ever so exciting is happening in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to see my mum's face! I will keep it a secret for now although it is very difficult!

Now I'm off to carve some pebbles but I will be back soon.

Hello. Great tree roots.

Mind now working overtime thinking about the secret. Mmm. Post soon so I find out if I'm right or not...

After re-reading what I have written I realise that it sounds as though I might be keith cheggers, which is not the case. Although I'm sure my mum would have loved that!

Looks like a wonderful place to walk, such beautiful old trees!
