My Riverside Walk And The Amazing Mosaic.

On Tuesday after a visit to the dentist I took a walk around the seaside town where I grew up and as always the riverside walk was enchanting . On I walked around the many ducks and came upon a beautiful sight which I share with you all today.

My song choice is a welsh Folk Song 'Ar Hyd Y Nos (All through the night) by Meinir Gwylim.

Happiness

Shines all around

Oh how I am so blessed

Nature's blessings embrace my heart

Sweet innuendos playing with the breeze

A story of love and beauty

Each footstep a-dancing

oh so precious

Happiness.

From my soul I do embrace

Oh such contentment.

A gush of cascading wonder

enticing

inviting

in teasing mode.

Laughters gurgling

up to the skies

the heavens

look down and rejoice.

A gush of cascading wonder

enticing

inviting

in teasing mode.

I stood in wonder

a haven of beauty

created from

the eye

of an artist.

The houses

the feel

the tender

yet strongly

sure-felt

emotion

captured

so clearly

so dearly.

A Harbour of pride

a tug of

heartfelt emotions

captured

in the eyes of this beholder;

shared

from the talented heart

of an artist so true.

let Me tell you all a little more abuot this Mosaic.

A project called 'Stori Aberaeron Story' is beginning with a great gusto. Around 40-50 pupils from Aberaeron Secondary School have got together under the talented eye of Pod Clare who is the Community Artist to create this amazing Mosaic of Aberaeron Harbour. The Pupil Referral Unit and local Youth Club have got together to help in this wonderful project also.

The Riverside shelter before this was covered in graffiti and spoiling the beauty of the River Aeron.

Below I have put together many photos some taken by myself and others by Cymdeithas Aberaeron's album; credits for these are given to the Association.

I hope you all enjoyed today's visit as much as I did creating this hub. It is so heartwarming to see a community getting together for such wonderful projects as this one.

Take care one and all and lots of love from Wales.

Isn't it wonderful how much there is to discover in our own neighbourhood if we are willing to see it. Enjoyed reading your hub and watching your pictures. Voted up and shared on pinterest.

Ps. You might want to consider adding a description to your own photos. Makes it easier for others to pin to pinterest. Take care.

Hi Eddy.

Always wondered what your little corner of Wales looked like. After seeing your photo's I now see why your love overflows with pride.

I've never been in your area of Wales, although I was often up north around Penmeanmawr and Conway and I once had a flirt with a lass from Brynmill near Swansea University. Mumbles was great.

Nice hub Eddy, have a good afternoon.

If I could choose any body of water to live next to, it would be a river. There is something so peaceful about the constant flow of water, and the processes of nature that are always happening. Lovely words here, Eddy, but I would expect nothing less from you.

Have a wonderful day my friend

Hi Ghaelach I know you have a connection with Wales and also that you have good memories. Mumbles isn't too far from here but I don't think I have ever been there and I also love North Wales. The mountain ranges are beautiful and you could be anywhere in the world.

Thank you for this wonderful comment my friend and enjoy your day.

What a beautiful mosaic. I did not get to get out of the house today so I missed out on the nice weather and a chance to take a walk so thanks for sharing this walk with us. Beautiful pictures. We have lots of geese and ducks just outside here, always roaming around since we have a couple ponds in the neighborhood. Your walk inspires me to go see them tomorrow. :)

you live in such a beautiful place. The ducks are precious, especially the one that was fluffing up its wings. I love the mural, and the fact that you even took portions of the mural, but the real place is ever so much more beautiful. Sharing something as simple as a walk from your part of the world can really brighten up another person's day, no matter where they are across the ocean.

What a beautiful spot! I love the ducks. I went on vacation one time. I think it was when I went to California with my grandparents. We had a hotel room with a sliding door that walked out to a patio. It was a beautiful day and I wanted to walk outside and explore. As I opened the curtain, these ducks came walking up to the patio out of the water. Your pictures remind me of that place. Beautiful words!

That was beautiful Eiddwen, and I the photos of the ducks were cute. The Harbor photos were adorable. That must have taken the pupils a while to put together. I am surprised that you did this after the dentist. I may not know the meanings, but I loved the music and words of the song too.
