Holiday in Wales Part 2

Well here is my second round up of pictures from our holiday in Wales. Little Dumpledale Farm was great fun. We had a big house to stay in and a good enclosed garden to explore. Here are Trilby and Aoife checking out the garden:
Plenty of good smells to find.
Crybbe seeing what the neighbours are up to.
Trilby with her favourite carrot toy looking for one of us to chase her!
And Crybbe choosing the best chair for a snooze.
But while the weather was still lovely and sunny we did get out to visit more sights too.

Here we are visiting a 13th century castle built by Edward 1 in 1277. It is HUGE and has very thick stone walls and a big moat (no water in it now :-))

You could climb right up inside and look out over the countryside but the steps were too steep for us doggies so Judith held us tight while Leigh climbed up to take some photos.

Can you see the pigeon on the right. He flew out of one of the little crevices when Leigh climbed up.

You can see in this picture how tiny we were compared to the huge castle.

This photo is from when we went on the four mile Marine Drive around Great Orme near Llandudno. It was a Victorian carriage drive in the past but we went in the car and stopped off to explore and see the views.

It was quite craggy and there were lots of sheep right near the cliff edge. One was trying to find himself the best view:

We schnauzers thought that if a sheep could climb up so high we would show how brave we were and so we perched on the stone wall for our photos:

This is me posing with the sea in the background and the wind in my beard :-)

And this is Trilby looking just a little bit anxious!
Well these were just a few of our best times in Wales but I hope we can go back again another time and see lots more :-)


  1. Lovely sea views from the Great Orme, you're very brave balancing up there! Did you see the old church on the Orme? Annie went to a pet blessing there in the summer. We have a lot of castles in Wales and it's nice to visit the ruins and sense the history. Glad you've had a fabulous holiday in Wales.

  2. Great pictures and wonderful places to snuffle around. Bet there were some great century's old scents there!
