Good day to one and all ; today I have baked a Cherry Cake for us and also some Welsh Cakes.

Many of you know that last Wednesday I went on a day out to Aberaeron a Welsh fishing town in West Wales.For those of you who don't and would like to read about it simply follow both links below.

The photos below I have taken from around the beautiful riverside walk which is as enchanting as ever.

So has everyone helped themselves to hot drinks and cakes ???

Don't you go blaming me now if you can't get into your jeans next week. ; it certainly won't be my fault.Ha ha ha!!

Right let's begin !!!

Magical voices

Carry me on life's breezes

To taste and to live.

Rivers of fortune

A life's journey etched in gold

A new birth so true.


A brook a new birth

Gurgling anticipation

New hope new glimmers.


A dwelling so dear

Wishing well from days gone by

Stirring beginnings.

Hi Eddy! I could smell the cherry cake.... but never found it ;-)

You took me for a wonderful walk again with all your pictures as I was rocked by your words and the beautiful music of "Raise me up".

Thank you for sharing all this morning. I am still missing my piece of cherry cake :-(

Hi Eddy, What a wonderful journey this was with you today. Knowing the wonderfulness of Spring in the UK (Welsh) countryside, I can literally smell the earth and the dampness. I do miss those walks. Fantastic pictures! And meaningful words to go with them. God Bless. PS I do have one request....the pictures seem to take a long time to load.....anyway of making them with less pixels?

Oh Eddy, I really do need to go visit this wonderful country of yours. Those! The one of the two chairs overlooking the sea says so much. Goodness gracious, Bev would never want to come home if she visited Wales.

Thank you for a beautiful tour this morning and thank you also for the cake. It was delicious.

Amazing photography and lovely poems, Eddy. I really enjoyed the visit and thank you for those cakes - now I really will have to go on a diet! Especially enjoyed the photo of the angry duck and the one escaping the ire. Voted it up.

Another beautiful collection of photos and words! I love bridges and really like that blue garden gate. You should write a travel guide for Wales---you already have all of us wishing we could visit. :-) Lurana

My my! Goosebumps rose on my spine of the beauty and splendor you gave us here.

that was one refreshing walk. Later my son of 3 will set on my knee. And see these things cherished in me, he will squirm a bit at the beginning, and then ask for more at the ending.

As I do my friend. We say "if life could only be so there I would go" and yet it is.

Eddy: Your 'little corner of Wales' is just beautiful. I love the poetry such great words and images. And your photos are outstanding. The river is beautiful and the cottages are so lovely and quaint. I love the photo of the blue door - you are right. It has so much character.
