November break in Wales.

We have just spent a lovely long weekend in the cottage called Lliety again in North Wales, tiny and cosy and very quiet. We had some family stuff to do up in Snowdonia and some family visiting too.
In the evenings we lit the fire...I don't know why I didn't take a picture when it was lit! Plenty of time to finish quilting a strippy quilt and finish an embroidery of a lavender field...I will take some pictures of them soon.

The light over the reedbed in the Conwy RSPB reserve, actually a storm was on the way but we managed to hide in a bird hide from the rain before hurtling back to the safety of the visitor centre and a nice warm cup of tea.


The little church at Beddgelert, the countryside looks so different at this time of year but every bit as beautiful as it was in the summer.



Walk by the River Glaslyn and you will feel renewed and at peace. Hardly any walkers or tourists about......heavenly!

That's a beautiful area of Wales. We spend the last two summer holidays in that region. (one much wetter than the other) but still a lovely place to visit.

Oh that must have a wonderful weekend. Looks so cozy and I love the church.

I loved your photographs of the Welsh countryside in Autumn. It brought back happy memories of our holidays in rural Wales.

I have only just discoverd your blog and I`m enjoying looking back over your previous posts.

What a lovely break and nice little cottage too. You can't beat a wood burner (ours has made a previously cold miserable room a veritable oasis of heat.) X-stitch. That's reminded me of unfinished projects . . .

Yes, winter breaks can be underrated. The short days are not so good but some places are wonderful in the winter, of course in a totally different way to summer.
