Castle Carreg Cennan
Today I take you with me on a hiking tour around Castle Carreg Cennan in the middle of Wales. Have you got your walking boots on? Okay, then let's go. The weather is great... that may look otherwise on the photos, but believe me it is a lovely 20 degree (I'm melting here in Switzerland by 35 degree *uff*).
Below the castle is a cave. You can rent a flashlight by the café, so that you can walk into the cave... what we did, of course. Okay, I confess, when it got darker I became afraid and walked back to the light, while my hubby discovered the cave closer. By the way, the castle was built there because of this natural cave... but honestly, I don't understand why, because the cave doesn't lead anywhere. So it wouldn't help as a escape tunnel. Well, I don't have to understand everything, do I? Maybe they just used it as a cellar.
After we had visited the castle we went on a 2,5 hour hiking tour around the castle.
At first the path leaded us through a beautiful wood of oak trees.
Then we crossed the Cennan.
From where we had another view to the castle.
We walked up the hill again to view back to the castle. The head cinema run quickly, when we imagined how life must have been there at earlier days.
Again and again we crossed sheep pastures. I loved it.
We met funny wooden monsters. If I had had the time, I would have loved to write a fairy tale about it spot on. But... who knows, maybe I'll do it later on.
LoL, yes, one has to watch out not to get wet feet.
Yummi... after that tour the big slice of rhabarber crumble cake was really deserved. Peter wasn't sure about it, but after seeing me enjoying it that much, he had to take one for himself too... but with cream and warmed of course :o).
Beim nächsten Mal (sofern ich nicht von der Hitze dahingerafft wurde) geht's dann auf eine Wanderung im Golden Valley. Nah, seid Ihr wieder mitdabei?
Next time (if the heat hasn't melted me) I'll take you on a hiking tour in the Golden Valley. Will you join us?
Ich wünsche Euch allen ein kühles Plätzchen und ansonsten gut schwitz!
I wish you all a cool place and otherwise sweat well!
