After the mountain drive...

...we arrive in  Aberystwyth 



 
 
and a certain lad was very pleased to see a beach again....


it doesn't take him long to start enjoying it either...



see the cliff railway....I took a ride, but the lads walked...










....and they were puffed out when they met me at the top.
Not surprising it was one heck of a hill...


glad we went up there...the views were great...



~ a great visit ~

and just to bore you completely I've added the oh so inevitable
video of the cliff railway ride....

  4. Lovely ride on the railway, certainly does look steep but worth it for that view. Glad William got to run on the beach :)

  5. Does that cliff railway work the same as the Lynton & Lynmouth one, with tanks of water, the heavy full one pulling the light empty one up?

    1. No, I think it works with a motor and steel cables ~ funny you should ask, I was listening for the whoosh of water, but there wasn't any signs of it being like Lynton/Lynmouth :-)

  6. I enjoyed this post - looks like such a beautiful place to hang out - ... I love it when we go to the central coast here in California. Your post reminds me that I'm due again for a visit.
