DSC05814Really enjoyed visiting Aberglasney to see David Cowdry’s new exhibition. It was wonderful as usual  and there were  many paintings that I just wanted to tuck under my arm and bring home!

DSC05812-1I didn’t  have a chance to photograph my favourite painting  as David was busy chatting to friends in the doorway  to the room where the beautiful woodland scene and owl was on display. Never mind , I’m going back to see the exhibition again  before the end of the week as it’s too good to miss!

It was time again for another walk with Walk Well Carmarthenshire. The walk was around Carmel Woods where there was a whole meadow, purple with field scabious. It was a delightful walk in the august sunshine  with interesting folk, who explained some of the history of the site, including use of the lime kilns.

We’ve had the family staying for a holiday and our grandson likes to visit the seaside….so do I!

Llanstephan is the place to go. There’s a beautiful beach, with perfect sand castle building sand, a castle, a tea room and a fish and chip wagon….what’s not to like!

The castle also has amazing views over the estuary and the best roly poly hill in the world…so says the grandson!

Next stop was a day walking around Garn Goch- an iron age hill fort- just 20 minutes drive from home.

There are two forts at Garn Goch and the remains of the walls are still to be seen and they are breathtaking!

Even after all this hill walking , the grandson still had energy to run all the way round our field and back again!

  1. I can tell from his artwork that David Cowdry has studied nature, and paints what he has seen, his paintings are excellent!

    I also loved the photos that you shot while on your walks, not only are the walls of the forts breathtaking, but so is the countryside around them!

      Thank you for reading and commenting. David’s work is outstanding and his exhibitions are always well attended. He has a page on Facebook if you are interested in how he gets up close to his subjects. He has owls nesting in a tree in his garden and for the underwater scenes he goes diving so he really knows some of his subjects very well.
      Walking around the walls of the fort one could try to imagine how the people used to live, work and survive on the top of a hill all those years ago. Thank goodness places like that are protected and maintained for all to see now and in the future.
      Hope you had a happy birthday and a special treat.

      Thanks for reading Marie.
      Lovely to see you and Ann at David’s exhibition. The holiday with the family went too quickly but we made the most of every second of their company. Grandchildren grow up so quickly and so do we! Not long now until our SPECIAL birthdays!! Can’t believe it!
