Arose shortly after sunrise and decided to take a walk down to the sea. The community store was to open at 8 AM, so plenty of time to enjoy a beautiful morning! The sun on the sea, the distant hills, and mountains was sublime. Plus lots of drama in that sky.
I was so very ready for this stay in Llwyngwril (the ‘Ll’ pronounced hard C, so clen-GO-ryool). Making plans to explore nearby towns, take a couple of steam train rides up into the hills, Portmeirion, Machynlleth for a museum and bird preserve, and tackle some longer hikes near my cottage — that was the extent of what I expected of myself, and it was a welcome relief after the rather strict schedule I’d set on the Wye Valley Walk. I also knew I’d be on the go in Shetland two weeks hence, so this was very much a vacation within a vacation.
