(North Wales Notebook) Plas Newydd 4/5

We had a weeks holiday in Porthmadog, North Wales in early September and so for the next few weeks I will be featuring a variety of images and collages, and a mix of subjects, which I hope you find entertaining.

 

So did you guess yesterday that one gets a great view of the Britannia Bridge from the garden terrace at Plas Newydd, you should have done because it could be seen above the house in Monday's posting.

 

A brief history of the bridge can be found here , and what a history it is.

Lovely little estuary is upstaged by the bold sky, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. It is not an estuary but a narrow channel between the North Wales mainland and the island of Anglesey.

Big sky
Brian Walbey: It is indeed vintage, thanks.
That is a gorgeous sky Brian, full of interest.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila.
I would think you also get a good view of the house from the bridge Brian
Brian Walbey: Unfortunately the sides of the bridge are so high one can't see over the side Bill.

That terracing means surely that the Victorians were busy here Brian
Brian Walbey: I suspect they were Chris.

Put it in bottles and become as rich as a sheik.
Brian Walbey: What a good idea Chad.

yes, I did comment on the bridge in Monday's shot. I wouldn't mind a view like this from my place.

Since we moved to our new offices, we don't have much of a view here, either , now.
Brian Walbey: It is a great view as is the one in the other direction, shame about the view from your new office though.
I should have realised it was the bridge,, they have a very big terrace smile
Brian Walbey: They do indeed Linda and it carries on into the trees for quite a distance.
So peaceful looking Brian..Did you walf far?
Brian Walbey: The path goes up into the trees for a short way and then turns back to the house.
Yes , I must explore here, that bridge looks great.
Brian Walbey: I didn't have my long lens so I could n't get any closer shots of the bridge.
Some great view
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Martin.
lovely view, well captured
Brian Walbey: It is indeed, thanks Derek.
Lovely day day for a stroll here Brian
Brian Walbey: It was by then Janet, it threw it down on the way there.
