Cilcain Village Gardens in conjunction with the NGS

Standard

This will be really nice.

Cilcain Village Hall /Neuadd y Pentre Cilcain

Four beautiful gardens will be open in Cilcain as part of the National Garden Scheme on Saturday July 7th, 2018.
Cilcain is a very pretty and colourful village and the community run the Village Hall, Show and Plant Fair.
You are now invited to come along and enjoy 4 of our gardens to raise funds for the NGS and our new Village Hall Garden.
Parking is available at the Village Hall and the church, and by the Old Water Pumping Station – enjoy a circular walk of about 1.4 miles to cover all gardens.
Rest and admire the views at NYTH Y WENNOL (3) with its borders and vegetable plot, then carry on to the bottom of the hill, turn left and see DELFRYN (4) a large well planted cottage garden with pond, woodland, large vegetable plot, roses, hydrangeas and seats to relax on. Only disabled parking on drive please…

Walking in Austria

Standard

IMG_0994We took the local bus from Mayrhofen toHintertux. Hintertux is a local ski mountain where you can ski 365 days of the year. We were not skiing but walking. The lift to the top is in three stages but we hoped off after the first stage and walked down into the town. Now I like walking down!  We started off in full cloud but walked down into hot sunshine ☀️

IMG_1001The walks are extremely well signposted so route finding is easy. We crossed bridges, admired the spring flowers and dodged cows. The cows all wear typical cow bells which you can hear from way off ( the purpose of the bells I suppose)

IMG_1009Apparently the better the milker the cow is the bigger the bell. Now I think that this is extremely mean. Not only does the poor girl have to carry a great big udder but a great big bell as well!

Awesome Austria

Standard

Hubs and I are having a cheeky week in Mayrhofen Austria. We have been multiple times but are still thrilled with the beautiful mountains, valleys and waterfalls. The mountain tops are easily accessible due to the chair lifts

When you reach the end of the lifts the restaurants are fabulous putting our efforts on Snowdon to shame. All the many paths are well labelled with numbers making walking much easier. Your not SUPPOSED to get lost👣

We generally buy a six day mountain pass which enables lift use free buses and train. Not bad value.

Great time out as I hardly ever go away ha ha😎

Oh What a Lovely Day!

Standard

IMG_0945IMG_0947IMG_0949Today the weather has been awesome. One of those British hot steamy days when you are glad to paddle (or swim) in the sea. Each time we come to our “place by the sea” we explore a little more of the Welsh coastal path. Today we dabbled and paddled around Borth-y-gest a pretty village. We discovered tea rooms( nothing new there) an easy stretch of coastal path and hidden coves and beaches. Idillic!

Maybe a little more of the coastal path tomorrow. The Llyn Peninsula Coastal Path is 110 miles (180kilometers) long so at this rate it may take us some time. But watch this space.
