What I Did on my Summer Vacation: Part 1

Background: After having had just about as much "excitement" as we could handle trying to drive a houseboat around Lake Powell in 2011 (details here), we decided to go low-tech in 2012 and did 2 short walking tours in the U.K.  First we spent 3 days walking in the Lake District, crossing mountain passes to get from one night's lodging to the next.  Then we spent 4 days walking along the Ceredigion Coast of Wales.  We averaged about 7 miles and 2 hours of rain each day.  ;)  

For the next week or so, I'll be posting pictures and stories from this trip.  

Today's Theme: Sheep

"If someone wants a sheep, then that means that he exists."  
~ From "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Today's Story: We saw lots of sheep!

Note: The last picture is of Welsh sheep which are, as explained to us by a completely objective and unbiased Welsh sheep farmer on the train, far superior to English sheep.  ;)


  1. Pretty countryside. So, you must have lost some weight with all that walking!

    1. Sadly, not as much as I would have liked... Maybe all those pub meals worked against me! ;)
