Country Roads

Taken about 12 years ago in Beddgelert, the track is a disused railway line and I am pictured her with my late dog Bobbi.
We live just off Darland Lane which is where this car is situated in the picture. The main Chester Road runs across it with the old filling station dated 1796 at the back.


Out on our hack with Cola we met a Dalmation with his owner on a bike! Dalmations were bred as coach horses so I suppose there is no better way to exercise them in these modern times.


Jason leading Joe on Cola over the small bridge that runs over the River Alyn in Rossett.



Some of the back lanes we ride regularly.

  2. Amazing! I'm in a big town, no road looks country here, even those far away from town are well paved and organized. I'm going to share photos of the country roads in another country, our neighbour. lol

    I love that first shot!

  12. Wonderful pictures, Sarah. Nothing says "country road" more than a boy on a horse.
