Here Be Dragons 2018

Standard

IMG_1491Late last year I bought a place by the sea. I’ve always wanted to be on the coast so job done! It is a caravan located to the left of this picture with views over the beautiful Cardigan Bay and towards the historic Criccieth Castle. I can’t wait to spend time there this spring

“Here be dragons” means dangerous or unexplored territories, in imitation of a medieval practice of putting illustrations of dragons, sea monsters and other mythological creatures on uncharted areas of maps.

There will be a great deal of exploring to do and much coastal walking. I will take lots of pictures and share them with you. In the mean time here is a friendly Welsh dragon to get you in the mood.

This invasion of friendly folk are all part of the Scarecrow competition. There were a few more visitors but they seem to have gone AWOL. The conversation was minimal but the cheerfulness was immeasurable.
