August 30 Walk around Dinefwr with the girls! August 30, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — lletty @ 7:24 pm

It was supposed to be bright and dry this morning but sadly the forecast was wide of the mark so when we (the girls!)  all met up for our planned walk around the National Trust Dinefwr Park  and Castle  we were clad in  jumpers, waterproofs and boots. However, as the day progressed the weather improved   and uplifted our spirits even more as we  walked and  chatted  about nature in general, history, art, photography, lichen, trees, deer….you name the subject we touched on it!  Until at last it was coffee, soup and cake time in the cafe in Newton House…deeelicious!


We looked at all the different lichen on the trees-apparently there are over 100 different types in the park….we found  5!

The pumping station was open and working   so we were able to see all the machinery inside


We followed a very wet, muddy path along to a new hide which gave spectacular views over the wet lands and oxbow lakes  of the Towy valley.


Sharing binoculars …a difficult procedure …as we all had different eyesight and varying spaces between our eyes…we all were able to see and enjoy  looking at coots, mallards and herons on the water.

These sticks poking out of the water brought on discussions about reflections, shadows, light, waves and clouds!



In fact there was a great deal of chatting about painting and views to capture  in paints or photos. Just looking around the park  gave us the  opportunity to get  more ideas …..trees, deer, old buildings…so many!




Nearly home after a brilliant day in the park with the girls!
