Wales to England

Caldicot, Wales to Sudbrook, England

We crossed over a very cool bridge as we left Wales and went back to England.  It was pretty RELAXING because I wasn’t driving!

The Water Pump

Saint Lythans, Cardiff, Wales

We found another church that Craig’s family would have been associated with back in the 1700’s. And just outside I saw this water pump and thought it would be a great place to RELAX, so I did!

Arched Beauty

Our GPS did something interesting and something we really liked, it took us out into the country.  The streets were tiny, luckily there weren’t to many other cars on the roads.  There were high hedges, so we couldn’t see a lot, but once in a while things would open up and we’d see some beautiful vistas.  This is one of those, we had to stop so I could take this photo of this arch with two horses passing by.

Thatched Roof & Pasture

IMG_3742Saint George’s, Cardiff, Wales

We drove all thru the countryside on a two lane road with only room for one car, luckily no other cars came by. There were tall hedges on both sides so we couldn’t see much, but every once in a while something opened up. As we were driving, we turned a corner and we saw this, I had to take a photo of this beautiful green pasture and the white house with it’s thatched roof! Love it!

Wisteria

Wales Countryside

Because it rains so much, the flowers throughout England and Wales are beautiful!  I really wanted a photo with wisteria growing over a house and I got this one as we drove thru one of the little villages.  I had seen a similar house with wisteria in a previous village, so I was ready as we drove by, one of my drive past shootings!

Looking to the Sea

Swansea, Wales

We drove out to the sea and here I RELAXED on top of a hill and looked out over Swansea, a beautiful, quaint seaside village.

Oystermouth Castle

Swansea, Wales

We went to Swansea where I took photos of a church where some of Craig’s family frequented. There was a sweet elderly lady there who gave us all kinds of information about the church. I had seen a castle not far from the church and I asked her if it would be worth walking to and taking photos of it. She said no because there was very little of it remaining, but she told us to go to Oystermouth Castle and so we did. It sat on a beautiful hill over looking Swansea and there, on the top, I RELAXED at the castle!

Coastal Beauty

IMG_3593Swansea, Wales

We spent the day driving around Wales, going to little villages where Craig’s family came from. In each village I took photos of it, particularly the churches where family members were christened or married. Swansea was one of these little places, beautiful and quaint sitting on the sea.
