A Different Walk, Part II
Walking across the boardwalk by the lake, with marshland either side.
The beautiful natural lake with yellow Water Lilies.
Potentilla - Creeping Cinquefoil, I believe.
There were lots of Whinberries growing, and we sampled a few.
Looking back across the Towy valley hills towards our valley. In the photo below it starts about half way across the photo from the left and has a dark "shoulder" to it. The beginning is in line with the darker tree in the middle. The fields here are grazed by Exmoor ponies, but we didn't see any up this end at all.
Large Skippers mating. I seem fated to discover the sex life of butterflies this week, as I saw a couple of Meadow Browns at it too the other day!
Finally, view across the Towy Valley on the way home - here is Dryslwyn Castle and FINALLY the car park has been unlocked and you are allowed to climb up to the castle again . . .
Fingers x'd, Keith seems to be on the mend due to a course of steroids - annoyingly, he sleeps really well with them and isn't eating like a horse!
