West Wales

We had a wonderful break in West Wales for the week-end. This little harbour of Porthgain was within walking distance of where we were staying. We were able to walk there and then follow the coastal path around to the next village.

The vernacular architecture features these stone cottages, they seemed to nestle into the hillside. One of the industries in the area had been quarrying and this quarry has been flooded by the sea. It was breathtaking to see as we came over the hill and saw it below. Although you can't see it in the photo there was a seal bobbing about in the 'lagoon'.
It was a beautiful magical place and my head is full of images of ravens falling through the air over wind swept woods and waves breaking on craggy rocks.
