    Wandering in West Wales



    I thought I would resurrect an {old} ongoing series of farming & countryside photographs taken over the past few years in my part of the country.

    Welcome back WIZZO. Croes nol.

    I've missed your wonderful photographs - especially the one of the woman in the coracle

    My son is shearing all over Pembs at the moment and loves the countryside there.

    Crikey, is he trimming already or is this an older pic? Smart guard on the side.

    I have been wandering in South Wales for the past 4 years. We moved near to Llandeilo, Carmarthernshire from Hampshire. Bought a smallholding and my trusty McCormick International 434...Just wanted to say Bora da....

    Noswaith dda Ray JB. Some good land and landscape around Llandeilo. My son went to Gelli Aur college for a few years and got to know a lot of people around there.

    On the 27th May 2011 we were silaging on the {mainland} cliffs over looking Pwll Gwaelod beach on the western side of Dinas Head.



    What we didn't know was the government was making a aerial survey of the area at the same time!

    Re: Wandering in West Wales

    These pics remind me of the days we used to go to help my sis in law's elderly uncle at the hay in New Quay. He had all the old tack in good condition. Loads of paint on everything to protect from the salt in the air. He baled with a Jones Blue Star behind a Nuffield 1060. Perry bale loader on a 35. Looking out over the sea - happy days
