UK Trip Day 7

Day 7: 
We visited  Scolton Manor House with my parents, brother and future sister-in-law.
It was pouring with rain most of the day, so we ducked from one building to another.
It wasn't until I downloaded the photo's did I realize that I had only taken photo's of the
    museum. Oh well, you get the idea from the website.

Old fashioned shop.

A pram very similar to the one I had as a baby according to my Mum.

A telephone exchange.

A replica doll house of the Manor House. Photo's taken for my friend Anna,
as she loves doll house's. 

The attention to detail is incredible.

The front of the house was off to one side.

This looks like a model too but it is actual farm equipment taken from above.

A gypsy caravan.

We had a lovely day out despite the rain.

UK Trip Day 6

Day 6: Monday August 6th We went to the town of Tenby in West Wales! 

The church is the heart of the town.

Bryn and the girls over looking Tenby Harbour!

The pots of flowers look lovely.

Girls eating lunch with their Grandparents.

and my nephew, brother and his fiancé.

Sweet shop as I remember them growing up.

Then onto Pembroke Castle.

There were so many tunnels and passageways it was easy to loose each other
 and loose each other we did. But it was a lot of fun too.

Time to take in the views from the top of the castle turrets!


Their cousin is head and shoulders taller than they are.

We had a lovely day out.

U.K. Trip 2012 Days 1 - 5

Hello I am back and finally able to post some photo's. We have been so busy running around trying to visit everyone while my daughter Jenny was on vacation with us.

Day 1: Wednesday August 1st at LAX with eight large suitcases. Oh my so many cases.

Day 2: We arrived at Heathrow London, on Thursday August 2nd and rented two cars to transport all five of us to Cardiff and all of our luggage. No photo's as I was too busy driving. :D

Day 3: Friday August 3rd, A quick visit from my Aunt, Cousin and Millie who couldn't wait to see Rachael.

Car ride photo's to visit Bryn's sister.

Dinner at the Tynant Pub in Morganstown with Bryn's family.

I loved the fuchsia hanging baskets behind the girls.

Views from my sister-in-laws front door.

Girls took a walk across the fields while their aunt and uncle went to get desert, but what their uncle showed them when they got back was a huge drop if they had gone any further up the path into a quarry. Yikes!

Sister and brother-in-laws home.

Day 4: Saturday August 4th Shopping day with Nanny who rarely gets a girl day wandering around the shops.  We had lunch at a restaurant called Pillers which is where my Mum and I used to go for lunch years ago.

It was a rainy day most of the day, but when we arrived back home the sun was shining and there was a rainbow in the sky.

Day 5: Sunday August 5th Driving down to West Wales to visit my Brother and his family.
It was pouring with rain most of the way there.

I love the views of the Welsh countryside.

The rain not so much.

The dog Fizz loved her rubber ring. 

My brothers beautiful back garden.

I took lots of photo's hoping it will inspire me when I get home.

Dinner at the Ferry Inn!

What are they all looking at.......

Ohhh that Huge Bridge that goes over the estuary. It goes right over the top of houses. 

Cousins skimming pebbles.
