I really like this view, I have to stand to one side to block out a house almost opposite but it does not matter a jot. In the afternoon the sun streams down straight onto the front of the house.
This is my little front patch, the grass has been cut twice as it was a small hayfield when I arrived. I grubbed out the weeds from the little bed and have popped in some smallish geraniums and a few violas and a pot on the doorstep. That is as far as I intend to go as this is rented.
If I turn right out of the gate and walk down into the village I pass this on the left side, it is a small garden with a picnic table at the center. it has been laid out and planted very well and is accessible by wheelchair.
On the right hand side is this lovely old chapel, it is very large and stretches back around 70' I would think, possibly further, built in the late 19th century it is such a shame to see it abandoned.
This is the view across from the chapel showing a bit more of the wind farm.
Just past the chapel I turn right up a side street, hang a left at the top and come to this open space. It is criss crossed with tracks left by dog walkers and Ben loves it with a passion.
Every now and then I find a splash of colour in the long grass, and it is not always a discarded drinks can.
The view from up here is over the village and into Gwaun Cae Gurwen, the village that joins Cwmgors. The surgery, chemists, library and post office are here, along with a good selection of shops. It is a comfortable 5-10 minute walk for us depending on how many dogs have to be greeted.
Next time I will walk in another direction and show you more.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. The sun continues to shine.
2. The water is soft and tea tastes sublime.
3. Ben is as happy as a dog with two tails.
4. I am becoming fitter by the minute.
5. My jeans are getting baggy.
I am now off to make a start on dinner, Chicken, Ham and Leek Pie with a suet pastry top, as requested by Francesca. Followed perhaps by some of yesterdays vanilla cheesecake,also a firm favourite with Fran.
Luckily all the hill walking will help burn off the calories.
