Today was the best day I’ve had in ages! 🙂 You might have seen in my Stories that we’re having a little holiday in Snowdonia and today was a jam packed schedule. One stop on our mini road trip was to my ancestral home, Talsarnau and Llandecwyn. Although I’m English born and bred, my Great-grandfather Roberts was born in Talsarnau and generations before him lived in the area. Some ended their days in the graveyard of St. Tecwyn’s Church with amazing views. My dodgy camerawork doesn’t do it justice. It’s such a beautiful spot! I adored it. 😍⛰ 🌊 Snowdonia in general has been fab. It feels familiar, but new. It reminds me a lot of parts of Cumbria, where I grew up, blended with the Scottish highlands which have been a long term love of mine, and the area around Robin Hood’s Bay in Yorkshire where my Gran used to live (and generations of my English ancestors before her) and where I spent lots of childhood holidays exploring beaches and moors. 🤗🤗🤗 I basically spent the whole day wishing I had brought a proper camera with me and wanting to stop the car and take photos every two minutes. So much wild, mossy beauty! 😍 There was this one cottage I really should have photographed, but the road-work traffic lights changed and the road was too narrow to stop 💔😂 It totally looked like the little houses on my pots, but with little sloping side extensions, sat by a river with a hill rising behind and trees around. Snowdonia, we will definitely be back! .

On a clear day you can see #Snowdon , Criccieth Castle and the front turret of Harlech Castle. It's a fantastic place to explore. 📷 Shared by @jimnicebutdimm.
