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 have 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 Andy 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”.
