    The name of our farm is "Nant Ddu" the ddu is just pronounced D. It was a cold very windy day with glimpses of sun now and again. The farm stands within an area classed as "outstanding natural beauty" and is within the boundaries of the Snowdonia National Park. It is a fab area for "walkers" and climbers, I have only ever managed to get half way up one of the mountains and then lost my nerve! I dont like heights. We run our flock of sheep up there, tough little critters are the Welsh mountain sheep. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them for you.

    Very beautiful. I don't know what I'd do with all that openness, I'm so used to trees and brush. If I were to travel anywhere, I'd love that part of the world . . . but the SO grew up traveling and is tired of it. Maybe he'll change his mind once I show him these photos [​IMG]
