During July and August, Roger and I went away for a few days several times. I've realised that I haven't shared the photos from these trips and I know that several of you - usually American friends and followers - enjoy seeing the British countryside.
Our first jaunt was to Llanidloes in mid-Wales. It's one of those places we've never been to - the sort you see on a signpost and never quite make it there. Originally I was going to a 3 day workshop there but this was cancelled. Undaunted Roger and I took the opportunity to drive about the area.
On our way we spotted these abbey ruins.
This is the hotel we stayed in. Although to be honest it was run like a guest house!
The market place in Llanidloes.
The river running through Llanidloes.
The countryside around Llanidloes.
We went for a walk and I spotted these shapes in the logs.
There were some gentle waterfalls
We spotted these guys. We thought they were toys until they moved!
A larger waterfall
One of the reservoir dams in the Elan Valley
And on the way home we went to Eastnor Castle. I've wanted to visit for a long time but it was always closed on the days we happened to be going past.
I hope you've enjoyed a look around mid-Wales.
Thanks for stopping by.
