Walking Well Friday again- it  seems to come round very quickly which is a good thing as it is so enjoyable. One can now guarantee that Philip -the leader- has organised everything to perfection- even the weather! To make things even easier this week the walk was around our village Llansadwrn- the very centre of the universe- well my universe anyway.

I didn’t have to drive to Llandeilo to meet up with the Group they came near here to the cosy hamlet of Felindre- can you call three houses and a bridge a hamlet-not sure. This delightful cottage was the setting off point for our walk following the path alongside  the River Marlais.

Crossing over a stream we walked into a lovely meadow where we were greeted by a gentle quacking from a number  of geese(?).

The walk took us through beautiful green meadows with the  views of the Brecon Beacons in the distance.

We  wondered how wide the original Roman road would have been as we tramped along it.  The road would have  been built to connect the Roman forts of Llandeilo and Llandovery.

A small stream crossed the road and a very rickety bridge built to cross it. Only one person  on the bridge at a time- wonder why!

The Roman road continued through pleasant glades of trees and ferns.

Someone has been very busy as there were a number of new gates,  path signs  and bridges which all help to make the walk more enjoyable.

The views over the Carmarthen Fans against the clouds and blue sky grew better and better as we climbed higher and higher!

Campion and foxgloves were in abundance on the hills but the bluebells were just slowly  fading away.

At last we reached the forest road after  walking up a rather  steep incline but the views were well worth it.  It was a time to relax and get one’s breath back and eat a Welsh cake!

We followed the forest track back down to a country road which had  cow parsley and buttercups on either side which were buzzing with  bees , birds and some butterflies.

The road took us back over the River Marlais  and that  completed our circular walk.

To end the walk, coffee and cake were at our house sitting outside under the shelter.

This was  a chance to show some flowers and goslings!

Sadly, only two goslings left now.

Of course Rufus had the last word- he was not amused that he had to stay inside while we were outside enjoying his garden!

    Your shelter looks exactly like a really good place to sit after a walk….or indeed at any time.
