Holiday in North Wales 4 (Final)
Continues from http://www.myfinepix.com/blog/680/31462
It's the last day of our holiday in Wales a lovely start with a beautiful blue sky, so I shall take another early morning walk with my camera.
I was lucky to see this Heron looking out to sea
Today we are going into the mountainous part of Snowdonia. Our first stop after a run through some lovely scenery is a pretty mountain village named Bedgelert.
As it's Wales I shouldn't have been so surprised when I came upon this dragon. A magnificent wood carving outside a gift shop.
What a ferocious creature, I wouldn't want to meet him on a dark night.
A short walk through nearby fields brought us to this grave which tells a very moving tale, and gives the village it's name.
And for our Welsh friends
Unfortunately it's a story dreamt up by David Pritchard an 18th century owner of the local Goat Hotel to help boost his trade. But it's still a good tale.
The walk back to the village gave us this pleasant view of the mountains.
The next stop was Betwys-y-Coed. I think I missed something here the place was crowded, and full of souvenir shops, but the nearest beauty spot appears to be Swallow Falls about a 3k walk away, I'm not up to this now, so no pics.
Back on the coach to head back to Criccieth via the Llanberis Pass. Very spectacular but all the possible pulling in places along the pass were occupied so I had to settle for some shots from the coach.
And that's the end this saga in four blogs of our North Wales break for it's back to Yorkshire tomorrow. I hope that you didn't find it too boring and that some of the pics appealed to you.
