Weekend in Wales

I spent the weekend before last in Wales, which was surprisingly beautiful and, yes, kind of full of sheep. Some of you may have seen some of my sheep themed Instagram pictures while I was there...

We stayed at a converted mill, which had a ship door knocker and a wooden mill by the stream behind the building.

Saturday was spent hiking/walking up Snowdon, which is the highest mountain in Wales. I felt very outdoorsy, even though we took the fairly reasonable Llanberis Path. (The round-trip still took up the majority of the day though! Whew!) We took the Granola Cluster Cookies I made along for sustenance. Below are some pictures from the day.

Near the start of the trail

Beautiful views
No, that is not a view of our trail.
More stunning views of the countryside.
Found this little guy behind the mill when we returned.
 Sunday we explored Caernarfon and the nearby area.

This was the view from the top of Caernarfon Castle, which is, according to our tour guide, technically a Palace.

As non-Welsh speakers, everyone enjoyed this seemingly onomatopoeic sign.

Found TONS of these lining a narrow street. So pretty!

Have you been to Wales? What did you most enjoy exploring?
