As mentioned already, we went on holiday in Wales during the half-term break and stayed at Hay-on-Wye. I love Wales, somehow it’s different from the landscape in England and reminds me a lot of Scotland. On this particular short holiday, even though we knew the weather was going to be crap, we made it a point to at least visit the Brecon Beacons National Park which is known for its waterfalls, lovely forests and beautiful walks/hiking paths to name a few. Of course though, with a little one, you can’t really do much walking, not to mention the bad weather.
When we arrived little T noticed the play-area right away and without any prodding headed there on her own. I was struck with how lovely the carpet of orangey, golden autumn leaves looked on the ground.
This play-area was actually for eight-year-olds and above, but she refused to go to the “little ones”.
And with the help of her dad, tried to do the climbing frames.
And she absolutely loved this! Was a bit worried that she might let go, but she held on like a little monkey! I love the look on her face 🙂
All that lovely orange was such a contrast against the grey-threatening clouds that hovered above us. We were worried that the rain would come even before we could explore and at a least do the walk near the play-area.
After a bit of coaxing, we managed to pry off little T’s hands from the swing and did the shortest-trail, hoping that the rain wouldn’t come.
An archway made of trees.
Stopped by the bridge to play some pooh sticks, because that’s what kids do!
This area was just a small slice of what the Brecons has to offer, too bad we didn’t have the time, to explore more.
By the time we left, the fog descended and you could hardly see the top of the beautiful mountains.
Would so love to visit again!
Have you explored the Brecon Beacons National Park?
Have a lovely weekend folks!
