Forest Fawr

One of our favourite woodland walks is in the woods above Castle Coch - the fairytale trail at Forest Fawr.

There's cauldrons, spiders, dragons, wizards and treasure chests to discover...


...and some magnificent views at the journey's end.

Look out teachers!

Will started big school today, so we're expecting a lot of teacher retirements by the end of the year!

Our local primary school has now opened a nursery, so Will is attending every afternoon. He was raring to go today!


If the teachers only knew what was coming...

Tim and Cindy's third wedding

Tim and Cindy held their third wedding today at Thornhill Church (it's a long story!)

The bride and groom looked gorgeous...


...and Hannah, Thomas and Will loved the barn dance party afterwards! Tom, particularly, was an incredibly enthusiastic dancer. I'd like to say he gets it from his Dad, but that would just be a blatant lie!

Monkeys at Monknash

We tried to make the most of the late summer sun today, and drove off to the seaside. We were originally planning to find Nash Point and visit the lighthouse there, but took a few wrong turnings in the car and ended up at the beautiful Monk Nash.

There was a lovely walk down to the seaside, along country lanes and wooded paths...


And when we reached the sea, we were greeted to some fantastic views, including a pod of dolphins who were jumping out of the water just beyond camera view.
