March 31 Day Out! March 31, 2016

Awakening to a lovely bright but cold morning we decided to have a day out  to celebrate an anniversary.

We  planned a circular route   which would take us through Lampeter, on to Newcastle Emlyn  and to Cardigan stopping off at Cenarth Falls before visiting the Wildife Centre  and   the Castle  at Cilgerran before coming home via St. Clears  and  Carmarthen  on the A40.  The furthest point was 90 minutes drive from Lletty Cottage.

First  stop   at Cenarth Falls to see if we could spy any jumping salmon but alas none to be seen!

DSC02916There were new information boards on the river bank. As can be seen on the board Welsh  language is used on all signs together with English.  Welsh is the first language for many people in this part of Wales.

Next stop off point after Cardigan was the Welsh Wild life Centre where we  treated ourselves to a delicious lunch and a number of coffees!

The Centre is amazing with many footpaths surrounding   it leading to places where birds, insects and all  creepy crawlies can be found! Great fun! There were bluebells and cowslips  growing in the banks  but not one of my photos shows them to any advantage! This is the best of a poor bunch!

Cilgerran Castle is   wonderful.  I climbed to the top of one of the towers and discovered a linking bridge to the other tower – I enjoyed  being the ‘lady’ of the castle looking down on the ‘lord’ of the castle in the bailey!  http://www.castlewales.com/cliger.html
