- A Beautiful day out
we arrived at the Cantref Reservoir,
this is toward the little island of conifers at the end,
because the water was so high, we couldn't make it out!
the other end, where it overflows
while there, a goose, was going to each car, I suspect for food
There is always a lot of cars in the vicinity to climb Pen y Fan mountain. but today it was spread a long way from the parking area, along the road.
Pen y Fan is the highest peak in South Wales, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. At 886 metres above sea-level, it is also the highest British peak south of Cadair Idris in Snowdonia.
still in the Brecon Beacons National Park, about a mile away,
we stopped and I had to take this of the valleys.
this little road of typical Welsh terraced cottages on the edge of Brecon town.
I thought they looked beautiful with their painted fronts.
this was from Brecon to the Heads of The Valleys A465 road,
just a gorgeous ride.
AND THEN - we were told the road to home was closed due to major engineering work going on with the A465, the work involves cutting away the mountain, so I should think it safer to close it. LOL. They have been on it for about 2 years already and I think at least another year to go.
We decided, as we were about an half an hour from home, we would follow the diversion signs, although we could have gone onto the M4. It took us nearly an hour to get about 2 or 3 miles further than we had been before the diversion.
BUT, it was through Valley villages we hadn't seen before and it was such a beautiful ride on a beautiful day, we didn't mind, but felt sorry for people who followed the signs and had to get somewhere by a certain time or were on a long journey and hadn't looked up on the web if the road was closed, like us!.

I added a frame around the image, which had been in the old ones and was thrilled with the result. All designed in Photoshop, I wish I could paint like this!

This is the card I redid, I haven't altered the photos in any way.

I hand "stitched" with my Uniball pen the gold stitches around the blue card.
If you made it to the end of the post well done, I hope you enjoyed my mix up.
