A Wonderful Haven Was Found.

Updated on May 8, 2013

On Monday we decided to explore the countryside not too far from home and we came upon this wonderful haven which I can only describe as Mother Nature's magical kingdom.

It is called Coedmor Nature Reserve and lies in the bosom of Llangoedmor in South West Wales.

Totally wondrous and there was a feeling of true and deep serenity.

I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

A river of life

Blending shades of greens and blues

Curvaceous ripples.

      Thank you so much RTalloni and like you the primrose pic is one of my favourites.

      The making of a Coracle is fascinating isn't it.

      Thank you again and here's wishing you a wonderful day.

      Thanks for this lovely walk through your beautiful countryside. Wales would be high on my travel the world list if only… :) I looked up coracle and now I want to make one!

      Your photo of the primroses growing up through the tangle reminds me of the hope that creation speaks in every season. Each plant persevering to replenish and renew the land calls out to us throughout the ages, "I was created to show the power and character of God!" Thank you for this reminder of nature's message to us!

      Fantastic pictures of your walk in the country side. It must be so peaceful to walk in the woods and enjoy nature! I had to search the term "Coracles" on the web and I learn that it's a "small, lightweight boat of the sort traditionally used in Wales".

      Thank you for sharing your walk in the woods and along the river on hubpages!

      Eddy: Gorgeous photos of Wales. I so love it when you show us pictures of your country. I have never been there and it is beautiful. I love your haikus - they are beautiful. I love the image - 'curvaceous ripples' so unique! The wildflowers are beautiful, too. May is the month of wildflowers here also. The daffodils are lovely also and I never knew they were the emblem of Wales. This is a stunning hub, Eddy. Well Done!

      I do enjoy pieces of other people's worlds; perhaps we should all write articles about our own little worlds. The nature we see and the creatures we may come across. Wonderful article, Eiddwen.

      Good Evening;

      Really crisp,eye-catching photography;the first nine photographs have an almost unreal, mystical quality.If I saw these in a tourist/holiday magazine,I would certainly feel more inclined to visit that mystery of nature,hidden within scenic Wales.

      Pleased to make your acquaintance;

      Yours Sincerely,
