A Visit To Bettws y coed

At Swallow Falls, Bettws y coed

Nick and Liz at Swallow Falls, Bettws y coed
Today we had a lovely afternoon out with Nick and Liz, they took us to Bettws y coed by car. It was nice to see some different scenery, seeing the snow on the mountains was spectacular. We had a lovely lunch at The Royal and then went to see Swallow Falls. We haven't been there for many years and now there's a turnstile with a £1 per person charge, but it was worth it. Lots of steps takes your breath away!

On the way home we popped into to see the snowdrops at Llantysilio Church which looked lovely in the sunshine.  Then back to the boat at Llangollen for a cup of coffee interspersed with ball playing with Ben the dog.

Some of my first drinking experiences were done at the Swallow Falls Hotel. I was on "Arduous Training" with my school's CCF based at a nearby Army camp. Happy memories, by and large! In those days there were still "dry" areas of North Wales.

Glad the pics brought back some memories. It's not dry in North Wales nowadays!
