Autumn

There's so much to love about Autumn...cosy nights in, hot drinks, bonfires, candles, long chilly walks, the leaves changing colour, a new wardrobe of weather appropriate clothing...I could go on! Autumn makes me feel nostalgic, and the drop in temperature is a gentle reminder that Christmas isn't too far away. I thought I'd share with you a few things that I've been enjoying this Autumn...
There's nothing better than a long beach walk on a cool, crisp day. David and I recently visited Pobbles Bay in Gower and it was absolutely gorgeous. Whenever we go to the beach, I always say that we should do this more often, so hopefully there will be a lot more visits to the beach coming up! It's so lovely to get away from it all and enjoy the natural beauty of Wales.
I also visited Henrhyd Falls, the highest waterfall in South Wales. Henrhyd Falls was actually used as the bat cave in The Dark Knight Rises (random fact!). It's a relatively easy walk from the car park, and you can even go behind the waterfall. I brought my camera with me, hoping to get lots of lovely photos, however, we only managed to get a couple of quick snaps on the iPhone before the heavens opened, and we made a hasty retreat, completely soaked through! Next time we'll check the weather forecast :-)
Dinefwr is a beautiful nature reserve in Llandeilo. It has a historic house and 18th century landscape park, enclosing a medieval deer park. We went on a lovely long walk through the woodland and fields, and enjoyed a cream tea in Newton House. We saw lots of deer, and we will definitely be going back there for another visit.
And finally...it's starting to get rather chilly, especially in the mornings, so I've started making porridge for breakfast to warm me up. My current favourite is to make it with a spoonful of Nutella mixed in, with a side of mixed berries and flaked almonds!

What are your favourite things about Autumn?

  1. You must live fairly near to me! I love beach walks in the autumn too. Last week we went to Pembrey Country Park and it was so quiet there, it was lovely.
