Eclipse Mid Wales

Its been many years since the last Eclipse I remember it well my two little boys were so tiny at the time.
Now 16 years later I felt this Eclipse was a bit of an anti climax. I thought it would go a lot darker than it did. Hay ho there was a strange eerie feeling over the village. I watched as a crow sat on next doors roof looking rather puzzled. He was gazing up towards the sky starring at the sun. It went slightly dusk around us the chickens were in and out of the hen house not knowing what the devil to do. We managed to get a few good shots but still I was a little disappointed.

The Wonders Of A Waterfall

 This is one of the most beautiful places in the valley Llanrhaeadr falls  Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall.  

The falls is such an enchanting place, with wonderful views all around. There is such a sense of serenity just being in the presence of the falls. A place of such sensory pleasure the sights, the smells, the feel and sounds of this wonderful part of Wales. 
Tucked away in the mountains only a few short miles from the village of Llanrhaeadr. The village is also well worth a visit here you can spend a little while browsing the shops dotted around the square. There is a post office which offers some lovely gifts to take home with you, many of the items for sale offer a quaint twist with a little bit of Welsh attached.  Llanhaeadr is a great place to spend a weekend away the village has much to offer.
A visit to the fall is a must for anyone visiting the Tanat Valley.
