Llyn Padarn, Wales - 16th January 2011

By: miapearl

Hello!
What a nice day it is. The sun is shining. It is Sunday and we have gone for a nice Sunday.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYAt-D8OtI/AAAAAAAAC1Q/lRmJ3EXuwto/pippipad1.jpg
This is Llyn Padarn or Lake Padarn in Snowdonia. The main village beside the lake is Llanberis, where there is a railway that links to the top of Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. You cannot see Llanberis in the picture and the top of Snowdon is hidden in the clouds.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYAuwPspOI/AAAAAAAAC1Y/O0Ig88cHD1c/pippipad3.jpg
This is the River Seiont that runs from Padarn to the sea (Menai Straits) at Caernarfon.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYAuYKzZKI/AAAAAAAAC1U/Q8QEqSeQRtk/pippipad2.jpg
The was a lot of rain recently, but not as much as the rain that fell on parts of Brazil, Sri Lanka and Australia causing large areas to be flooded and loss of life. Here, the Seiont has flooded adjacent fields.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYAvuWC8lI/AAAAAAAAC1c/ECqezVbMTH0/pippipad4.jpg
These swans like a bit extra paddling space.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYAv2vp2dI/AAAAAAAAC1g/_didO-nW6dQ/pippipad5.jpg
You can see how much water is in the river - it looks high under the bridge.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYAwYSkgeI/AAAAAAAAC1k/O31avMyQk40/pippi6.jpg
The moon is almost round.

Caernarfon, Wales - 18th January 2011

By: miapearl

Hello!
It is a beautiful but cold day. My host went into town and had some time to spare before needing to get home to wait for her son to return from school.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYBuPkD5YI/AAAAAAAAC14/AGWo9Vc1FTQ/pipcfon1.jpg
We took a short walk half-way around the castle.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYBulmcI3I/AAAAAAAAC18/Dlzd7eeEe8Q/pipcfon2.jpg
The castle was built in the 13th century
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYBvPRxZvI/AAAAAAAAC2A/ap-kIZPLIb8/pipcfon3.jpg
next to the River Seiont.
http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYBvRACkvI/AAAAAAAAC2E/fZ0vD9ksT8g/pipcfon4.jpg
This river comes from Lake Padarn, where we were the other day. The river is tidal.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYBv2LupkI/AAAAAAAAC2I/gQmnvqrBGg0/pipcfon5.jpg
Near the castle, there is a bridge to cross the Seiont.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TTYBwecLN3I/AAAAAAAAC2M/EYdoL0DiYkE/pipcfon6.jpg
This photo showing part of the town wall was taken from the bridge.

This is Llanberis.
http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TT32SHt239I/AAAAAAAAC3U/XvZIibWBoxo/pippiperis1.jpg

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TT32St2oAiI/AAAAAAAAC3Y/rP_ZNWcrqZQ/pippiperis2.jpg
I haven't got any food for these young swans on Llyn Padarn, but we are off for lunch.

By: miapearl

We've returned from a lovely day out to go to the library. My host had a special treat instore.
The library has a Welsh copy of Pippi Longstocking, Pippi Hosan-Hir, but unfortunately, my host wasn't allowed to borrow the book.
Luckily, we were able to look at it in the library.

Dinas Dinlle, Wales - 23rd January 2011

By: miapearl

Today, we went for a walk along the beach at Dinas Dinlle. It was a pleasant afternoon and there were other people around walking too.
http://lh3.ggpht.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TT32W3YijxI/AAAAAAAAC30/WC1Eo1yomO0/pippidd1.jpg
The mountains are the Eifls.

The green hill was the site of an Iron Age fort mentioned in the Welsh legends, the Mabinogi.

Ryton Gardens, Coventry, England - 29th January 2011

By: miapearl

Hello Mum!
Today, we've come to Ryton Gardens, headquarters of Garden Organic, an organisation founded to promote organic gardening, education and research.
It is Potato Day. Gardeners come here to buy seed potatoes of many different varieties to grow at home and/or the allotment.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5B_OSGtI/AAAAAAAAC5c/VIHi2i39gA8/pippiryton1.jpg
Look at all these spuds.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5ChQqC9I/AAAAAAAAC5g/zM7ZXcsbLBM/pippiryton2.jpg
There's over a hundred varieties here.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5C-ZcevI/AAAAAAAAC5k/I_LveTYAKio/pippiryton4.jpg
After my host bought their choices, we went on a tour of the Heritage Seed Library. These are sieves.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TU7r51-m08I/AAAAAAAAC8A/aXQQWktBM04/crpryton3.jpg
This is a display in the Vegetable Kingdom section, showing us the importance of various things.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5DePaLlI/AAAAAAAAC5o/cbj2uam36kA/pippiryton5.jpg
We went for a walk afterwards in the gardens. They have a polytunnel with winter salads and things.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5D5X2PgI/AAAAAAAAC5s/PhrMPG3eSBk/pippiryton6.jpg
This is a compost tumbler.

Enginuity near Ironbridge, England - 29th January 2011

By: miapearl

Hello Mum!
After the fresh air at Ryton Gardens, we went to a hands-on science museum near Ironbridge.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5ENeNZ-I/AAAAAAAAC5w/vdueZ9uJFyY/pippiib1.jpg
A water play thing.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5EtmcuqI/AAAAAAAAC50/iypVapOQq4Q/pippiib2.jpg
They have various inventions on display. Old sewing machines.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5FHVYHEI/AAAAAAAAC54/LHq4TR6qofY/pippiib4.jpg
It's a robot.

A look at what's inside a rollerskate.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TU7r6ksIr9I/AAAAAAAAC8E/6lajZa85YOg/crpib1.jpg
How about building earthquake-proof buildings? Somehow, I don't think this will survive the shakes. A young girl was fascinated with us ToyVoyagers and assisted us with our photographs!
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TUc5GNPr4YI/AAAAAAAAC6A/_KyHD_P6dzc/pippiib6.jpg
This is a tessellation jigsaw the nice girl is helping me with.

My host's home, Wales - 8th February 2011

By: miapearl

A big parcel arrived at my host's house.
Shall we take a look inside?
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVMUtLjvZbI/AAAAAAAAC8Y/VWEsWc1AGDg/knexbox1.jpg
Wow, look at all that K'Nex!
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVMUyr9Z4SI/AAAAAAAAC80/AEb7p4yrMGI/knex2.jpg
My host's son likes building things with K'Nex.

Porthmadog, Wales - 10th February 2011

By: miapearl

Hello Mum!
My host took me to the town of Porthmadog. She wanted to rescue toys who wanted to go travelling round the world. But first, we spotted something strange going down the road.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ2ekq3YI/AAAAAAAAC-I/YuNX3lRrmlI/whrff1.jpg
A steam train leaving Porthmadog on the Welsh Highland Railway line. This line goes all the way to Caernarfon.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ3FfC_FI/AAAAAAAAC-M/ElMZDHvC1EU/whrff2.jpg
The line from Caernarfon has opened in sections before reaching all the way here. This is the first year that trains will be able to run the whole length.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ3t7P6gI/AAAAAAAAC-Q/uENXu_YLq1c/whrff3.jpg
Half-term is soon. Perhaps we'll be able to go on a train ride!
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ4H_pMMI/AAAAAAAAC-U/k1f923cRXm8/whrff4.jpg
It isn't a very long train. There isn't much room on the platform for the trains to come this way.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ4txr1CI/AAAAAAAAC-Y/lp-2jjEX5gY/whrff5.jpg
There it goes. This is the Glaslyn river.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ5RSTiwI/AAAAAAAAC-c/pp-ss5_iSK8/whrff6.jpg
we went in search of toys.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ6_TmhVI/AAAAAAAAC-o/6YK-b1-8gLc/charityshoppr.jpg
Do you think one here wants to go travelling?

A pub!, Caernarfon - 10th February 2011

By: miapearl

After all that shopping for toys needing rescue, we were in need of refreshments.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ54TyMUI/AAAAAAAAC-g/7yN7lkY6u8g/pint1.jpg
Regit Brown and I were telling Misty Rose and Luc Zeke about our travels.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_7ODftPSZPsY/TVUQ6So8KEI/AAAAAAAAC-k/3nk36bg0F78/pint2.jpg
Needless to say, they both want to see the world!
