Holiday Photos

So here we are, I'm organised and ready to go.

For our holiday this year we went to a beautiful village called St Dogmaels which is in west Wales, near Cardigan on the River Teifi.

Our cottage was near the top of a steep hill above the village.  It was surrounded by fields and hedgerows and lots of space.

I'd decided before we went that I wanted a nice relaxed holiday.

We visited Cardigan.

Walked along the river.

Inspected the ruined abbey in the village.

Admired the countryside.

Made friends with the wildlife.

And relaxed.

I got plenty of knitting and reading done and we took a pile of DVDs to watch.  We also watched the daily stages in the Tour de France - watching those cyclists climbing the mountains of the Pyrennees was about as strenuous as the holiday got.

Congratulations to Bradley Wiggins, first British winner ever of the Tour de France - love the sideburns.

I now feel wonderfully refreshed, batteries are fully charged and I'm ready for anything.
