Xmas in Wales 2018.
We spent our Xmas 2018 in Wales with family there. More family live in the Midlands area were visited too as it was a lot closer than from Cornwall. In the week prior to travelling north, we had a Xmas surprise ourselves when the Severn Bridge toll was abandoned. BIG SMILE! They are already removing the toll booths during nights and I snuck a crafty photo of a remaining one.
Visibility from the new Severn Bridge is awesome and the structure simply imposing in height as you approach this marvellous work of geniuses.
I am struck by the scenery of the rolling Welsh hills of the Cambrian Mountain ranges as we travel through. After much rain, there were absolute waterfalls thundering down some hills. The weather seemed to go grey and the tops of the Welsh hills disappeared in the misty fog.
A walk with family of all ages and the dog took us to the pebbly beach of Aberystwyth. With the tide out, we walked along the river Ystwyth as it meets the sea. Waters run through quickly and it looks like a super place to white water rafting. Certainly the sides along the river flow looks ancient and crimped like a Cornish pasty in places.
Looking over to the harbour moreover showed boats on the bottom awaiting the now incoming tide. In the distance one can clearly see the castle remains as well as Constitution Hill. A cliff railway can take you up on the hill where the views are stunning. Sadly it was closed when we visited Wales over Xmas 2018.
