Day trip

Yesterday we’ve made a day trip to Anglesey, Wales. As hubby took a lot of pictures, I’ve decided to make 3 more posts about the places we’ve visited. Our first stop was South Stack Cliffs, see more on my blog. This is where I though we can have a lovely morning watching the birds and […]

Penrhyn castle

Penrhyn was the fist 19th century castle that we’ve visited. It was very interesting to see it. We’ve arrived at 3.30pm and there wasn’t enough time to visit all, so we’ll have to visit it again the future. The family made their fortune from sugar cane plantations and later, from slate mines in Wales. They […]

Beaumaris Castle

Beaumaris Castle is part of CADW. Built under Edward I, as a few other castles in north Wales, including Chirk Castle, that we’ve visited this year. The story behind constructing the castle is impressive and the castle itself is beautiful. The moat had fresh water. Also, the castle had a connection with the Menai Strait […]

South Stack Cliffs

South Stack Cliffs is one of the RSPB’s nature reserves. I’ve seen pictures of the cliffs and I’ve wanted to visit the reserve and to spot puffins. It was windy, but we’ve expected that. The view is amazing and the cliffs are beautiful. Hubby spotted a bird of prey on a cliff. I was under […]

Gardening

Update, 24/03. After 15 days, the herb garden looks like this: As I’ve already disclosed in an older post, I’m a serial plant killer. But now, I am so happy with my attempts on gardening. Last year we’ve bought the bushes, that already had ~50cm in height. They are doing great so far and I’m […]

Port Sunlight

Port Sunlight is one of my favourite places. I love the tranquility of the village, the truly inspirational story behind it and the beautiful Victorian buildings and parks. Last year the Port Sunlight Museum was refurbished. We’ve visited today and we’ve enjoyed it very much. William Lever was such an amazing man. He was a […]

Attingham park

Last weekend we’ve been to Attingham Park, same day as we’ve visited the Alpaca farm. As the lady from the ticket office told us is the feeding time for the deers, we’ve started with the walled garden, the woodland walk and the deer park walk. The walled garden wasn’t that impressive, but it was as […]

Alpaca farm

On 8th march, as we do celebrate Women’s day, we went for a day trip in Shropshire. It was a lovely day, sunny and warm, so our first stop was Mulberry Alpacas farm. After that we’ve went to Attingham Park (I’ll make another article about the park) and Shrewsbury. The farm is at 1 hour […]

Chirk Castle

Chirk Castle is a castle with 700+ years of history. We’ve wanted to visit it last weekend, but we were too busy then. Today we’ve visit it and taken the guided tour. The front gate looks amazing, so imposing and nicely crafted. The gate is not in the original place. The castle, as it can […]
