So I definitely blog about Wales, here’s…
Thirteen Things to do in Wales.
And beware, there are more castles here than is safe for human consumption.
1… Stay in a 17th Century cottage, in Ysbyty Ifan in Snowdonia National Park
4… Let your small boys run riot around the castle grounds. Only one small boy was caught on camera, the other is camera-shy, LOL
5… On the second day, find yourself another castle in Edward I’s Ring of Iron – or is it Stone *grin* This one is Criccieth.
6… Take as in #3 pictures of the castle as possible
7… Head for a beach in the afternoon. We managed a different one every day. 8… Head for the walled town of Caernafon 9… Copy #3 and #5 of course, LOL.
11… Take the hobbits to yet another beach. This is Llandudno’s West beach
12… Try to squeeze in those extra castles, just to keep up the quota. This is Harlech and Conwy.
13… And on the last day, head for Harlech beach, *the* best beach, and watch while the men tackle the difficult job of flying a kite.

I know this is last weeks but i just loved Wales.
~Is obscenely jealous~ Looks like y’all had lots of fun!
Di: Every castle definitely had it’s own atmosphere. And the 5 I went to were all in different states of ruin, LOL But then ask me again in a few years…
Janet: Eeep, Hannibal?
And we’re heading back to north Wales in August… and I think there’re more castles left to see *grin*
WOW! I love the photos!!! They just take your breath away!

I love the pictures!
It looks fascinating there!
Thank you for sharing them with us!
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!

Have a wonderful day!
#3 reminds me of the castle that was shown in the latest Hannibal movie!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Your list reminded me very much of a trip to Scotland a few years ago with my then boyfriend (minus any kids, obviously). He was dragging me through I don’t know how many castles – for all I know it could have been the same one over and over again. At least, from looking at my 5000 photos I can’t tell them apart anymore. But of course it was cool nevertheless. :o)
Wow, great pics!! I’m so jealous. LOL What a rich history to explore. Thanks for sharing it with us. 🙂
Love the photographs and the commentary…I could have looked quite happily at 13 more…
Are castles like snowflakes? Each one unique and original or is it more like, you’ve seen one castle, you’ve seen them all.
Wow! Amazing photos. Beaches and castles are wonderful. Castle ruins are great too.
Gorgeous, Kim! It looks like you had a GREAT time!!!
Love it! We did some castle hopping when we lived in Germany, and we loved it!
Can you ever have too many castles?
I love castles and beaches. You took some beautiful photos and the weather looked wonderful!
You can never have to many castles.
Well, I did number 1 🙂 A miner’s cottage, it was fantastic, would love to spend more time there!
LOL Jennie. It’s destined for a scorching summer here again. I think I’m going to hide in the house…
And ms.george. They’re ebooks, do downloadable (is that a word??) anywhere in the world from the publisher, http://www.samhainpublishing.com One’s in print, available from Amazon. Thanks for asking *grin*
Beaches and Castle
Oh I love castles! What a fun experience!
I absolutely love the castles! My dream is to spend at least one month on your side of the pond to visit all the castles and grand homes I’ve only read about. Thanks for posting these.
Wales was one of the places I did not make it to when I was studying in York almost twenty years ago. Gads, I’m old!
Great post and lovely pictures. I may have to check out your books. Are they available on my side of the pond?
lovely! I haven’t seen any
‘real’ castles in my life. Definitely must visit Wales one day…
Happy TT! 🙂
Great photos! If you get the chance, visit Leeds Castle, which isn’t in Leeds, but about an hour out of London. Happy TT!
Beautiful photos and another place to add to my “Must See” list.
Wow, those are just breathtaking!
The beaches are beautiful as well.
My favorite is #10, ,too. Great photos.
Check out my TT
beaches and castles. Must be nice! I could go to the beaches here but I’d freeze my toes off.
I wish the US had more architecture that looked like that! Great TT, have a fun night!
I love the photos, and castles! Great list! And kite flying on the beach sounds great right about now!
My eyes are open on matchsticks… but I’ve put my link up. I can go to bed now…
Is it really Thursday again already? Wales + Castles + Beaches sounds like a good holiday (in fact I think it was several times when I was somewhat shorter than I am now)
