Wales - my homeland

A couple of nights ago I stopped by at one of my Publisher The Wild Rose Press's Tuesday 'chats'.  I wasn't able to stay long as I'm in  the UK, five hours ahead of Eastern time, and it was past my bedtime. I did promise, however, to post some pictures of Wales, so here they are.  Although I currently live in a small village in England, my heart is still in Wales and its scenery and legends inspired much of my writing.

Wales is a land of waterfalls, and I love waterfalls
This is one of the most famous, at Devil's Bridge.





And this is the bridge itself - which is actually
three bridges, one above the other.
The Graig Goch Dam (Red Dragon Dam) When I was doing
long distance and endurance riding in Wales, part of the course on one of the
rides was down the steep mountain on one side, then right over the dam
to the other side, an amazing experience!
This is the road to my sister's place in Wales where we stay when
we are visiting the family.  You can see the water lying in the
fields - it was a rare rainy day! 😉





Part of the bridleway where I used to ride
The shingle beach 
the harbour

Portmeirion, the Italianate village where the TV seriesThe Prisoner was filmed
Two more pictures of Snowdonia.  I could see the mountain range from
my home in Wales, and one day I looked across at sunset, to see the snow
sweeping down across the mountains like a mist.  This inspired the planet
Nifleheim, which appears in STARQUEST and CHILDREN OF THE MIST

I hope you enjoyed my little tour around some of my favourite parts of Wales - and if you visit the UK, don't forget Wales.  Most people visit the chocolate box villages in England, the rugged scenery and lochs of Scotland and the lovely countryside of Ireland, but forget all about Wales, which has some of the most spectacular scenery!
