Home again, naturally

It pains me to admit it but the return flight  was excellent in every way and the outgoing flight only became a nightmare when the mother of the two year old sat next to me gave him a can of a well known Energy drink.  Credit where it’s due, a big Thank You to Thomas Cook.

So I’m back in Turkey after a month working in Barmouth, the beautiful Welsh town where we still have a business.  The Snowdonia countryside was stunning as always and it was great to meet up with friends but I prefer it here in almost every way.

I’m starting with an impression  of a corner of our seaside garden in Wales while it’s still fresh in my mind.  It certainly left an impression on my back tidying up after a gap of nearly a year.

We have owned a house and business in the coastal town of Barmouth in Wales for 23 years.  Nowadays, it’s a factory outlet store selling the Regatta outdoor clothing range.  If you are ever nearby, pop in and say hello to the wonderful Teresa and Louıse.  Barmouth is a truly beautiful location, sandwiched between the Irish sea and the mountains of Snowdonia and, although we prefer the climate here, we love it there.  Actually, by now I’m looking forward to a bit of rain!  Anyway, as Barmouth is a tourist town I  must go over to work in the summer.  I’m leaving tonight but I’ll be back in a month and meanwhile I’ll try to do some watercolour painting in the hills, but that’s not really relevant to this blog.  So sadly, I have to leave you temporarily with this sunset painting of Kaş.
