We are having a couple of weeks off to catch up with family and do some house stuff. My mother in law came down on the train for a visit, then we drove her home to N Wales and headed across to Aberdaron for a couple of nights by the sea. It's where Mr Asparagus Pea proposed to me 3 years ago and this washing line featured in the image we used as a wedding invite.
The area is a Welsh speaking stronghold and the signposts drip with the extra vowels that give the language its distinctive look. W gives an 'oo' sound and Y gives an 'uh' - put them together and you get the English W sound. (I guess this sign had English on the other side?!?)
We walked the cliff paths and poked around in rockpools.
The summer seems to be coming to an early end with berries ripening and fungi sprouting.
We're back home now and there is more pickling underway….
I have discovered two things:
- Life is too short to cut carrots into flower shapes (unless that's your job),
- I knew I needed one of those special food cover umbrella thingies, I just didn't know why…
