Of course I was going to return to this delightful cottage as soon as another opportunity arose. This time I've used my birthday as an excuse! Arrived late Wednesday evening just as a beautiful pink moon was rising over the hills opposite.
Thursday dawned to bright warm sunshine and of course I got my camera out first thing. This time we've brought my cat Titch. She's never seen so much open space and was a bit daunted at first but soon got used to it.
Here she is having her first sight of sheep! There are lots of birds around and a whole family of Robins - who seem to be having their first sight of a cat! Naturally I'm a bit worried about her hunting and she is, but definitely prefers searching out the many mice and voles in the bank at the back of the cottage - she's only manged one so far and luckily I was on hand to shout and it got away.
This morning is rather disappointingly cloudy so far but I'm hopeful of a brighter afternoon. Yesterday was glorious and we took a trip to nearby Barmouth for a walk on the beach.
And of course the traditional ice cream and a paddle in the sea. I can never resist getting my feet wet. The very pink ice cream parlour was too cute - I choose mango sorbet.
We haven't decided what we'll do today - our last full day - I'm happy to just stay around the cottage and get on with some crocheting but we'll see what the weather does. And Titch is very happy to spend her day stalking mice - she knows I'm not best pleased and looks very guilty doesn't she!
