A Ride in the Welsh Countryside – Boddellyn
Our second part of our countryside trip was in Wales. Do you know much about Wales? Nope, neither did we. The second official language of Wales is Welsh … and it has tons of consonants, and all of the words are so strange I can’t even begin to figure out how to pronounce them. But I really enjoyed taking pictures of them!
We picked Castle Boddellyn ’cause we saw a drawing of it on a sign from the highway … or something. Maybe we saw the castle from the highway, I’m not sure. At any rate, it looked like it wasn’t too far off of our path to the next city … so we stopped off to check it out.
We toured the inside of the castle – but it wasn’t nearly as photogenic as the outside of the castle. I <3 stones and sunlight and sky and green!
The castle had a small hedge maze that we did just for fun. Ryan and I made opposite choices at the first opportunity and then raced to the middle – laughing and running. As I recall, Ryan won. I’m pretty sure I eventually cheated (slipping between two hedgerows) … and he still won. But I got him to pose for a picture … and that’s a victory for me. :)
