Relaxing Welsh Week....

308 Pumpkin and Spooky flowers

307 Pumpkins guarding our little holiday house on Halloween.

306 Don't make me go back to work...... Please....

305 Can Saturday afternoons get any better? Window seat with the most beautiful view ever, cup of tea and a great book. Perfect

304 This place is actually heaven. 

303 We walked right around this point.  Lovely stuff!

302 Wowzers.  What a view.

301 Our little home for the week (on the left).  I had such a wonderful time.  Relaxed, chilled and happy.  I don't think I have been so sad to leave a holiday cottage.
