Water Music

We arrived on holiday today, 19th June!  The beautiful Welsh lands near to Llangollen.  We were staying at Berwyn Station Masters house (links: Llangollen Railway website, see it on Hoseasons), and it was their diesel gala weekend (more about that in the next post though!).  We had been travelling a long time and finally arrived.  We got into the house, and it was stunning.  Right on the railway and with a beautiful view overlooking the River Dee right from the living room window and one of the bedroom windows.

We went out for a walk around the local area this evening.  We went along the river and up to Horseshoe Falls.  Horseshoe falls is a manmade horseshoe shaped weir.  It was designed by Thomas Telford to create a pool of water that flows through a valve house and flow meter and forms the start of the Llangollen Canal.

On our walk we had some lovely views, and we saw some Spotted Flycatchers and some Grey Wagtails as well as plenty of flora.  When we got home, I sat in the window seat in the living room and enjoyed watching and listening to the music of the Dee.  It would be the music that defined the weekend for me.

How It Made Me Feel

The view over the Dee from Berwyn Station is truly magical.  The sound is like music and its always near, never ceasing, never going away.  It is beautiful.  I felt at peace, and relaxed.  It is probably the nicest place I’ve ever stayed.
