W is for...

I could have chosen several topics from our UK trip for the letter W, but when I started thinking about my selection, there was no doubt in my mind what I would post when I thought of Wales. We so enjoyed the Welsh countryside...

We so enjoyed our Welsh hosts, blogger Liz, her husband Mike, and of course, George.

We had fun when George led us on our walk to Wormshead.

Of course, George wouldn't even think of worrying the sheep.

We saw a bit of history -- both ancient---and modern,
and a chance to contrast rural Wales
and urban..
Wishing our Welsh friends a blessed Christmas. Their plans for the holidays, as have ours, have been influenced by heavy snowfalls. We had a lovely card of a snow-covered Wormshead. May all who read here find the Christmas season brings special blessings.

Seeing as how I am half Welsh, I enjoyed your pictures immensely! One of these days I'll get there myself. Have a great day!

Oh I do hope Liz and Husband will take me on that same walk to Wormshead! I'm hoping for next September! Isn't she just the loveliest person? I met her in Vancouver a couple of years ago when the family came over and spent time on Vancouver Island and travelling across BC.

Lovely pictures. 'Wales' is an excellent W-word. How lucky that you had a subject at hand. I see you met some sheep and a dog, but did you see any cats in Wales?

I don't travel much. I don't even like going outside the house, because of the snow. It's too cold on my paws. So the internet is a blessing to a curious cat like myself.
