Hills, Tree and Moorlands

During our visit to Wales recently, we got to drive across some lovely scenary.  I think these photos show how much we enjoyed our stay in this area west of the Brecon Hills.

see the track on the left of the above picture ↑

We came face to face with two Very Large timber lorries
heading towards us. 
 Needless to say we reversed out of
their way.... phew they were BIG

We stuck with it though, and found a lovely place for a walk.  Well worth 
moving back for lorries, but they hadn't driven along this lovely tranquil track.

Then our drive took us over the moor

here's a close-up of the above picture

Early on we had seen the timber lorries, and further along on our journey
we saw a few places where trees have been cleared.
Obviously well managed.

and we came across a reservoir

all in all this was one heck of
a lovely drive out

Historic house

 From my post 24th June

this is the historic house we visited....
Dinefwr - the National Trust property in Carmarthenshire.

Surrounded with beautiful parkland designed by Capability Brown

and where the sheep sleep in the shade of a large tree

So pleased we visited.

Watercolour view

Inspired from our walk, see my previous post when we visited Carmarthenshire, I painted this little watercolour.  It will always remind me of our visit.

A great few days break

Something lovely about travel and a few days away.  Across to Carmarthenshire.  One of our visits was to Llandeilo and the National Trust property Dinefwr. (more about that in another post).

We took a gorgeous walk up to a ruined castle.  First walking through Castle Woods Nature Reserve.   I'll say no more, just leave you with photos to enjoy, heading for this ruined castle first



in the next picture you can see a building. That's the National Trust property we visited whilst here. - this calls for another post.

~ we had great weather, met lovely people and
had a great time ~

Another sketch in my Stillman & Birn sketchbook.  I'm liking this sketchbook the more I use it, the paper is such good quality.  I can see why artists rave about it.

Sharing today with 
many thanks to EVA & Kristin for hosting.
