The remains of this submerged forest at Borth in Mid Wales only appears during low tide.
Radio carbon dating shows that these trees died during the Bronze Age.
Borth is a coastal village in Ceredigion. I love beaches and I’d never been to this one, so we decided to pay it a visit.
We considered hiking up to the top of that cliff. Then we thought better of it.
The view looking towards Aberdovey.
First we went to The Penrallt Gallery in Machynlleth, a small bookshop with a lovely and carefully put together selection. They specialise in art, poetry and Welsh publishers.
Slightly blurry photograph which hopefully conveys something of this shop’s elegant and soothing atmosphere.
I’ve visited Aberystwyth three times. I was born there. I went there to have a look at the University when I was seventeen. Last month I took my partner there during our trip to Mid Wales. If the pattern continues I’ll be about fifty eight the next time I go to Aberystwyth.
Whenever I go back to Mid and West Wales my partner says that some part of me loosens and relaxes. “Home”, it says, “home, home home”.
