To gather more photos for our projects, Sally and I travelled back over to the west of Wales through Swansea to see our castles again. We got up at 6 this time so we could make the most of the daylight and so it was a very long day for us. We had wonderful weather (I even got a little sunburnt!)
This time at Carreg Cennen we walked down to the river and bridge we didn’t see before, and also all the way round to the other side of the castle we hadn’t seen. I’m so glad we did – we saw some gorgeous views over sheer cliffs and also saw a Hercules plane fly past twice, we couldn’t believe it was so close to us (as you can see in my picture, that photo is without zoom as I was under pressure to catch a snap of it!)
We also went back to Dinefwr for Sally, and explored the grounds and the broadwalk which was basically a walk through nature! We managed to find some wildlife while we were there but unfortunately because of the time of year we didn’t get to see any deer which was a real shame.
It’s really made me appreciate how close I am to these amazing historic sites which I find so interesting to explore. I’d love to go and visit some more castles in Wales at some point!
