Spring in Wales

February 5, 2018

While traveling around North Wales this past weekend we visited the remains of Saint Dwynwens Church on Llanddwyn Island off the West coast of Angelsey. Dwynwen is the Patron saint of lovers here in Wales and January 25 is celebrated here, the equivalent of our St Valentines Day. On a hilltop in the Snowdonia National Park above Bala Lake, Caer Cai a Roman Fort was noted as being a hideout for King Arthur and his men in the 6th century after the Romans went home in the fifth century. On top of the fort a farmhouse was built that was burnt down by Oliver Cromwell in 1642 and rebuilt in 1647. We visited the twelve bedroom farmhouse built from solid granite. A harbinger of spring, daffodils on the roadside on Angelsey Island this past weekend.
