A Surprise Christmas Gift!

     Ynyslas beach, North of Aberystwyth, provided a special sight for visitors over the Festive Season.   A Minke whale’s body was found there, washed up by the strong seas.

     Lots of local folk went along to see – and smell! – it, and it made the UK news.   Not that many people outside Wales knew where Ynyslas nor Aberystwyth were!   “Somewhere in Wales” would have been just as informative to them.

     Just think, though, if this had happened in Spring or Summer:  masses of holiday-makers would have visited the area – and spent their money in local shops and pubs.

     Let us make our land a place of interest, at all times, to attract visitors and their purses.

The Weather – Again

     There have been terrible floods in the North of Mother England, of course.   The terrible circumstances of many folk living up there is a heart-rending thought.

     But Wales has not been without its share of flooding.   Snowdonia got it bad, and my spies there tell me that the neat little town of Llanrwst was affected (though most of the farmland round the town seems to have escaped).

     We must remember such things and – as I’ve said many times (ad nauseam some would say) – we must prepare ourselves and our homes for such unexpected happenings

Greetings From Wales And Elsewhere!

     This should show people who have the misfortune to live outside Wales how strong the Celtic connections are.   But, in case you don’t use any of these ancient Celtic languages, Happy New Year to all my readers!

About Archie Lowe

Though not born in Wales, I have lived and worked here for many years now. I love the place and love that mercurial thing "Welshness". I have been accused of being "a Taffophile" - which is pretty near the truth. The question I ask whenever some idea comes up for the whole of the UK is: "What's in it for Wales". I believe in an independent Wales and am so pleased that our Assembly is a big step on that road.
