Photo Days – Llanberis

It was so sunny today we decided to go for a walk to Llanberis with Little Miss and the doggies. Our first outing as a fivesome! Here’s a selection of my favourite photos of the day – for some reason WordPress has inserted them in reverse order but I can’t be bothered to re-sort!

“Fron Haul” at the Slate Museum – old quarrymen houses from my home town. They were taken down brick by brick and rebuilt at the slate museum.

I’ve always wondered where that tunnel leads to. Also fascinated by how clear the water is here.

Random figure stood at the end of the jetty. I’d love to know what he’s thinking.

There’s a few photos I didn’t get today for example the old quarry hospital and a view of the whole lake. I’ll post another photo day for the rest of the views.

Hope you all had a great Good Friday!

    Lovely! The only part of Wales I’ve been to is Cardiff, but I’d love to visit more! It’s so different from England (the foreign language helps with that), that it’s kind of like going somewhere really exotic, while technically being in the same country. And I REALLY miss mountains! I should definitely go to Wales to see some mountains. I’m so glad the UK has been having nice weather lately. In Canada is snows well into April so this has been my first taste of spring.

      Despite living in Wales all my life I’ve only been to Cardiff twice! I’m biased but the North have the best mountains! The weather has been gorgeous recently! I just wish we had more snow in the winter.
