Babymoon in the UK Part 2 – Wales

After Trowbridge/Bath, we drove west towards Wales. We visited some castle ruins, cathedrals, did some hiking and chilled in this laid back part of the country.

Driving along the coast of Wales.

DSC07251-copy-aThat evening we arrived at our hotel. Mark found this bed and breakfast place literally in the middle of nowhere. The town was so small I think our B&B place was also the only store/restaurant in town!

DSC07253-copy-aIt was such a lovely, yet sleepy quiet little town! It used to be a mining town (hence the name of our B&B, Miner’s Arms). Now you try to say Pontrhydygroes.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live in a secluded place like this? Must be nice I think, especially if there was a Starbucks nearby.DSC07295-copy-aA strange sight on our drive back to the hotel. What do you think those are?
