Weekend in Wales

We have been blessed with some beautiful weather over the last few days (although it’s looking rather grey today!) We made the most of the weather at the weekend by taking a trip to Wales to spend some time with Bryan’s Mother and to see the sea! :)
First we went over to Conwy to see the castle…


We stopped by the smallest house!

Then headed to the seaside to eat icecream and go for a paddle :)

On Sunday we took a picnic over to Lake Geirionydd. It’s one of those well hidden places that somehow everyone knows about! The single track lanes with grass growing down the middle didn’t look like they were going to lead to a well-known area… but when we arrived there were already plenty of people out canoeing and playing in the lake, with many more sitting and enjoying the sunshine.

By the time we left the lake the roads you can see in the photos were packed with cars… and given their narrowness, this made escaping quite a challenge! I was very glad not to be driving! It was a beautiful place though, and well worth a picnic if you’re nearby and brave enough to drive those roads! ;)

Amazingly, the Google Streetcar has been down there – “Street View” of the Lake
There are a few more photos over on Facebook – FB Photo Album (you don’t need to use FB to see my photos!) :)

So how did you all spend your weekend? Were you out enjoying the sunshine? Or stuck inside revising for exams?
