In the summer of 2009, Mrs H and I went on an ill-fated fortnight’s holiday in beautiful North Wales, basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth. Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series, this is the first time that I’ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme.

We’d heard the whistle of the Cambrian steam train during our earlier walks in Barmouth, and jumped at the chance to ride on her ourselves. Had a great time and a lovely lunch in Porthmadog itself, and we both managed to pick up some more art of the house. (Which reminds me, I’m not sure where that ended up). On the way back, even the train conductor was complaining about how inaccurate the Met Office weather forecasts are for North Wales. I guess the view from out of their windows in their London offices just doesn’t quite reach out here …
