Friday Field Trip - Wales

Daughter Jess went to Wales. Before you get too impressed--she lives in Northern Ireland, so it's not THAT big of a trip. She's sharing pictures. And I've had some contributions from an international traveler, so those will be showing up on future Fridays. Meanwhile, enjoy. (Click the photos to enlarge)

And don't forget - today's the last official day to enter my Smashwords contest.

I asked Jess for a little information about the photos. If you have questions, shout out. She normally checks in a few times a day.

Gower photos. From the Gower Peninsula area of Wales, mostly taken between Penmaen and Three Cliffs Bay.

Gower Coast

Gower countryside





The falls : I've no idea where we were. It was pretty!


Neath Abbey. Founded by Richard de Granville in 1130.




Sheep




Tredegar House: 17th century manor house built by the Morgan family. Started building in the 1500s, although none of that survives. Morgan as in Blackbeard! In Newport, Wales.



Swan at Tredegar House.



And don't forget, it's release day for Nowhere to Hide! Get your copy now. Next week, we'll party.

Stunning photos! Love the cliffs and the sea. Nice capture of the atmosphere. Wildish and yet serene. Pretty.

Best of luck with your book, Terry!
