A Cottage in Wales

My sister-in-law's cottage in Solva, Wales built in 1760.  Such a cozy holiday haven with breathtaking views!


On our way down the lane.  Better to park and walk down - the road is narrow and leaves very little margin for error!


Elizabeth's cottage is the lower one hidden behind the trees.  The tide is out...


Come in...


Very old and low doors.


A seat by the window.


It's cool and breezy outside but nice and warm in the sun room.


Finds from the cottage gardens.


A perfect place for tea.


A much needed fireplace for cold nights.


Upstairs to bed...


A good night's sleep with the beautiful ocean air coming in the window... 


Thanks for coming!

We've just returned from our UK holidays.  First stop was St. David's in Wales - the crowiest place I've ever been!



St. David's cathedral - with two crows in the sky.


nests and nests in the trees


lots of noisy crows


two up there watching us


crows run the show and rule the roost in St. David's!

caw caw...
