Good day one and all; I hope the weather is treating you well ;today we have sunshine so make the most of it.

Our Grandchildren Ellie and Charlie are staying for a week but are spending today and tomorrow with cousins whom they haven't seen so much of since moving away. Of course then this gives me more time on my hands and what better day to spend this time than catching up with my hubbing friends.

Dai had last Monday off work as it was a Public Bank Holiday and we took the children to Talyllyn Railway up in North Wales.

I won't give you any more details on the railway as my next hub will be on this subject itself.

Many of these next photos have been taken as the train was moving and I was surprised that they came out so well.

Anyway I hope you enjoy .

Chugging along

Onwards we go;

Through vale and dale

Such treasures on show.

x

Mountains and valleys

Fill each heart so;

I am always at one

With Nature's grand show.

x

A flowing so wondrous

Caressing yet clear;

Today to share with all

What I hold so dear.

Yesteryear

Eternal to share

Such sweetness of life

Tenacious beauties evolve

Expanse a world of beauty

Reaching the heavens

Yearning for that life

Enriched with love

A mountain of peace

Riches to share; moments to care.

Whispers

So enthralling

Each syllable astounds

Oh those magical emotions

Worked their way into my eager wisdom

Quiet volume yet so enriched

Oh so treasured each view

Those magical

Whispers.

Children's laughter

Moments to treasure;

Wondrous emotions

Are my heart's pleasure

x

The joy of young lives

So awesome such times;

The words of a child

Their world so sublime.

x

Racing with such glee

Those little legs carry;

A world o of innocence

Excited views a-starry.

x

A world to treasure

A heart full of love;

Wonders to share

On the wings of a dove.

Yesteryear's magic

Enchanted and compelling

To share with such glee.

Just chugging along

Singing songs of happiness

Those enchanted views.

Sweet tentacles of pleasure

as delicate as

pink/white china

tender

yet a with

a

strength

not seen

but felt.

Each dawn a comforting

almost bewitching cloak

sprinkled with magical

honeysuckle

dew drops.

Laughter

as sweet

as daybreak;

moments

as cherished

as the

noon's spell.

Evening's songs

flowing

through

each woodland

draped

with the sweetness

of nectar's

sweetness.

The sweetness of life.

Those whispers of wonder.

      Morning Eddy.

      Like you have in your little corner of Wales, we have a cloudless sky at the moment.

      Just back from the caravan and preparing for our trip over to my daughters in Lancashire next week.

      You have taken some beautiful pix which show you had a wonderful day out.

      Just added a video and a lot of pix to "camping with comfort". Pop over you'll enjoy them.

      Take care, have a nice day and say hello to Dai.
