Last week I promised you more pictures my UK trip. I hope, by sharing these images you will see why I love the place so much and why it has been so inspirational for my writing. Not that I haven’t found magical places to inspire me pretty much everywhere I’ve gone, but England and Wales hold a special place for me.
So if it pleases you, come with for a virtual tour of Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire, England, and mid to northern Wales, ending at Criccieth Castle on the Irish Sea.
On the Road and the trail
After Powis Castle, I paused in Welshpool for some lunch. These are day trips here after all, and I had a personal goal… to get to the shores of the Irish Sea before I had to turn back and pick up my husband from his job in Solihul just east of Birmingham. So I didn’t stop much…
And finally the Shore
I scurried the last bit along the drive to the coast. Though I’d originally hoped to make the ferry landing at Aberdaron, I stopped at Criccieth just so I could drive back to the Midlands before midnight (hey, that would make a great book title!) Though if I’d known about Torchwood then, I’d have forgone all other plans and headed straight for Cardiff. 😀
