Not a drop

No, sadly the title doesn’t mean that I have given up wine!

As we race at speed towards Christmas I remembered that I hadn’t posted my photos from my Anglesey trip back in the summer where, with an amazing stroke of luck, we didn’t have a single drop of rain. It was magical and unheard of in the, ahem, many years I have been visiting. With some decidedly inclement weather over the last wee while, I thought that these might be the perfect antidote.

There were bright days filled with

The weather in Wales

Gosh, already a month has flown by since my last post. It has been a very mixed month with most of it spent trying to keep my head above water. But I would like to share some of the beautiful moments I had while away on Anglesey in October. The weather was very mixed with glorious sunshine one moment and then crashing storms the next. It made for an interesting week! The nicest thing is knowing that the weather is always driven really quickly by the strong sea wind so if a day starts off wet then it very rarely stays that way all day.

Blue skies. It could be spring :-) (one with a very wonky horizon. Clearly wasn’t paying attention!)IMG_1097

Storms over Snowdonia.

There was also this amazing storm. The light was just stunning with the land lit by vivid shards of sun against the steel grey storm clouds behind.

Which led to a rainbow.

There were beautifully lit clouds as the sun dropped below the horizon.

And wonderful warm sunsets.

It sounds daft but couldn’t believe how much further round the sun sets at this time of year. It is just not something I notice when I’m home.

I thoroughly love the spring and summer in Wales but the weather in the Autumn was quite something and I would definitely go back at this time of year again.
