Winter Sunshine at Mwnt

Some people have this strange idea that it's always raining in Wales! How wrong can they be! We were very busy at Ffynnon Grog today, making progress with our cottage refurbishments, but we just had to stop and take time out to enjoy looking at the fabulous views bathed in glorious winter sunshine. (Well, at 14oC, it felt much more like late spring!)

Today, from our cottages and fields, we had the most amazing views across our land and down to the mound that is Mwnt, and its iconic tiny whitewashed church.

Away to the right of our view, we could very clearly see, on the horizon, the line of mountains that is North Wales and Snowdonia. The rich blue of the sunny sky dipped down to meet the deep blue of the sea. It was hard to believe it's mid January!

We decided to take a longer break from beautifying the cottages, and walked down to the beach. Although it was deserted, apart from a couple of walkers who were enjoying walking the coast path, it didn't feel lonely. The waves were lapping the shore; Cardigan Island was clear and inviting, and the air was full of birdsong. A relaxed flock of sheep were lazily grazing Mwnt amidst the vibrant yellow of the first gorse bushes to flower. We obviously weren't alone in appreciating this unseasonal weather! Wheeling overhead was a magnificent Red Kite, totally unconcerned that an angry crow was trying to chase him away!


We turned and looked back up the hill and could clearly see the main house at Ffynnon Grog. It made no difference that we see this view almost every day; we never cease to appreciate its unbelievable beauty.
