I can now officially say that I have fallen in love with the beautiful Welsh countryside!! I love the green rolling hills and valleys that cover this lush green countryside. Little inquisitive sheep dotted across the fields and the pebble covered coastline.

I spent a week visiting my friends in Wales and ended up feeling like I had my own local tour guides for this spectacular countryside of Wales. My friend Amy took me out to Aberffraw a small village and community on the South West coast of the Isle of Anglesey in Wales, by the west bank of the River Ffraw for an afternoon stroll.

In the early Middle Ages Aberffraw was the capital of the Kingdom of Gwynedd from c.860 AD until c.1170. Under the eponymous Aberffraw Dynasty it came to be the most important political centre in medieval Wales.

I would definitely recommend this beautiful circular coastal walk around the headland of Aberffraw to any nature loving person. We started our leisurely walk with the dogs at the Mouth of the Afon Ffraw. It was low tide so some of the small local boats were stranded just above the water line in the mud, waiting to be released at high-tide.

This gentle walk along an easy clear path  took us along the river, through bramble pathways and eventually reveal a rocky coastline that is low and rugged when the tide is out.

The sky was big and blue, the Sun shining bright and warm with a gentle refreshing breeze cooling us down as we walked along this beautiful coastline.

In the distance the mountains of Snowdonia roll gently, one after the other, such a magnificent sight. Here I got to see and capture some of the “famous” sheep filled fields of Wales. It looked like the sheep were actually posing for my photos as they turned towards me as soon as I pointed my camera their way.
