Some photos from our recent holiday in North Wales:
our cottage – the FR runs at the bottom of the garden behind the photographer! Very nice cottage, all you could need.
The view was quality too alongside the monkey puzzle tree.
We visited the TR…
and saw an engine in the museum that we recognised!
Penrhyn Castle museum was fun – here’s Charles with Olivia running past
and the rhodos/azaleas were beautiful too.
We had a great time at a NGS garden in Harlech, sporting its own duck breeding grounds:
and Thomas saw a slowworm!
Portmeirion was beautiful as ever, although it was Camelias that were out more than rhodos this year.
Conwy Valley railway museum was a hit with the kids – the miniature rides, museum, drive your own engine, bumper cars etc were excellent…
I drove ‘Galslyn’ on the WHHR
and we rode in the buffet car (yes we did have a drink – you have to!) behind Gertrude…
They have even added a duck house, viewable from the miniature ride! Brilliant!
Porthmadog model railway show was excellent as ever – Little Wickhill really caught the eye!
and of course the new EDM models kits for the Penrhyn/FR Hunslets
Plas Brondanw was a joy as ever:
and the road to it from Tan y Bwlch has some great views, although the weather wasn’t great that day:
In Croesor, the new gallery and tea shop is fantastic!
and I even got Claire wearing a railway fleece! Happy days.
More from the holidays including WHR and FR images soon.
