Off road driving

Today Keith decided to put the Range Rover through its paces off road. He had the route all planned, downloaded from the internet. It began at our local Little Chef for breakfast (most important!) and from there we made our way through Oswestry and off into the wilds of Glen Ceiriog, pasing numerous cows, sheep, pheasants and even a rabbit en route.
We also discovered a lovely waterfall at Rhaeadr. Apparently, it's the highest in Wales, 240 feet.
In the carpark, we met a very friendly goat, who seemed keen on nibbling the open car door and a lovely St Bernard who lives there too. Pictures below. To see more, or if you suffer from terminal insomnia, go here

So now you all know why I love north Wales - apart from the fact that Keith is there, of course! :)

I guess I'll probably never get to Wales, Jenny. How can I? I can't pronounce the name of one bloody place!!! LOL!

Jennyta said...

It's not so difficult. I taught myself pronunciation from the internet. So now I can have a good go at pronouncing place names - the language itself - now that's a different matter! Not started on that yet! :)
