Spring is beginning to appear in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. Last week traveling around the Isle of Angelsey we saw many young lambs springing around in the pastures, a definite harbinger of spring!
Lake Idwal in the park on a clear night is named after Prince Idwal Foel, a grandson of Rhodri Mawr one of the ancient kings of Wales. Idwal Foel died in battle against the Saxons in 942 A.D. There are legends of King Arthur from the mid sixth century associated with this very special lake.
