This is the market town of Cardigan a very pretty place, on the estuary of the River Teifi.
The main high street has lots of traditional shops butchers, bakers, crafts and bookshops as well as the normal ones you find in any shopping area many with with Gothic or Victorian shop fronts.
It also has a very tasty fish & chip shop, no photos I ate the evidence :)

We were in Narberth and visited this excellent workshop/ store Wild and Woolly Workshop
Beaufully made sheepskin boots and bags in an array of wonderful colours all hand dyed and made by the very friendly owner. Baby to adult sizes, there are ready made items or you can order the colours and ribbon/ tapes for individual boots.
As well as making the boots and bags the owner also teaches spinning, something to follow up on when I next visit  :)

Meini Gwyr

Some more photos from my trip to Wales.
We went to see Meine Gwyr (Meini means large stone and Gwyr means crooked) unique in Welsh prehistoric architecture, being the only known raised henge-circle. I took a photo of the noticeboard on the way into the field, as it has a nice sketch of what the henge would have looked like


The site must have looked stunning when all the stones were standing but sadly now only 2 remain. You can still see the stumps of where the other stones stood.
This is the area the famous blue stones used in Stonehenge came from although the stones used for this henge are a form of volcanic rock. 


It was a beautiful sunny even with only 2 stones in the field the place look special

The two remaining stones

I See Sheep

I went for a holiday to West Wales to visit my brother, it was great to get out of London and breathe fresh air.
It is a beautiful place with stunning views of mountains and valleys and yes I saw sheep. I was luckly the weather was great so I was able to take long walks and visit nearby towns.
I took lots of photos when I was out 'n' about, so I will posting some of them over the next week. Here are few of the pics of the flowers growing at the side of the road while out walking one day and the sheep :)
