Getaway! - Gateway to Wales.

When life gets you down, get away! Over the past several months I've been lucky enough to spend two long weekends in Wales - Devauden, Chepstow and Hay-on-Wye to be more exact. By train, by car, by bus and by foot the landscape is breath-taking at every turn. Old ruins, sheep and lambs, Blue Bells, Goats Willow, Dandelions . . . and when we were inside it was all about the food! Delicious home-cookin', ice creams, and country pubs like The Raglan Arms. It's a real treat to forget all about the City hustle and soak up the fresh air. And be in a real house!
Goats Willow on a country walk. . . . . . And in the foyer of the Nelson Museum, Monmouth
Hay-on-Wye is famous for its Festival and endless book shops, but they've also got some great antique shops like 'Going For A Song'. Lots of nice cafes too.
(Tintern Abbey and a peek at my cape!)
Can't wait to get back there!
