Alpacas in the Wirral

Are these alpacas or are they llamas? They are not in a zoo. These two animals were in a field in the countryside in Raby, on the Wirral.

They were in a field close to this lovely pub.

Bridge in Durham

Look how still the water is in the River Wear. It is a very peaceful place

I climbed Mount Snowdon in Wales a few weeks ago.

On the same day there was a race up and down the mountain. You can see how steep it is by how much the runners were struggling.

The path on Snowdon

As you can see, the path on Snowdon is no more than rocks. It is very difficult to walk on it, and it must be very difficult to run on it.

Conway Castle

On the way back from Snowdon, I went to Conway, which has a very impressive castle.

Here are two pictures.
