Snowdonia

Hugo managed to get us online...
 Our ISP supplies us with mobile WIFI, but it took a bit of working out!
 So here's the story so far...

It was a really long journey on Friday – nearly 11 hours on the road, but we had decided to drive the length of Wales, instead of taking the motorway & the scenery since arriving in Wales has been spectacular!

 We love being in the mountains & our destination certainly hasn’t disappointed. Far from it, it’s a beautiful place & we are having a fantastic time!

Snowdonia

It had been 29 degrees in the car for the main part of our journey, so it was such a relief when we were finally able to get out, explore & potter about.



Our peaceful haven amongst the mountains...

Which is just perfect...

And we are very happy to be here...

Our caravan has surpassed our expectations – it’s cosy, in a perfect location & surrounded by beautiful, peaceful countryside. What’s more, we are only a short walk from Beddgelert & 10 minutes from one of the footpaths to the Snowdon summit...
It's so wonderful to be waking up every morning to such wonderful views!



Having some leisure time together is wonderful. We are already enjoying relaxing, walking, reading, chatting & laughing together again. It just feels so long since we last had some quality time.
We feel very lucky that we enjoy each other’s company & that we laugh lots – we really do know how to have a good time, but the best moments are always those that don’t cost much...

Bye for now,

Kay, Sime & Hugo

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Being Grateful

We made a pact a few years ago that we would only leave Meadowcroft if we found somewhere really special to live. One of the most important things featured on both of our lists was to have stunning views, so when we found our French house - the view just blew us away!
We are still waiting for the sale to go through and so far, it's been nine months since our offer was accepted... The notaire discovered a slight glitch in that the terrace was actually owned by a neighbour. It was then agreed that the present owner of the house was to purchase the terrace and shortly before the sale went through the neighbour unexpectedly died... His estate is now being transferred to his brother, who is more than happy to sell the terrace and we have been asked if we would like to continue to wait. 
We are not in any rush and know that our little house will be worth waiting for...   Maybe the exchange rate will be more favourable by the time we go through the sale and in the meantime - we are maki…

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate...


But we know...
And this is one thing which makes living here difficult.
How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?  It just doesn't make sense.
