This is the view I awoke to on Monday morning. (Well, that's not strictly true - otherwise I'd have spent the night on the balcony outside my room with my camera to hand and that would have been very, very cold).
Gorgeous, isn't it? A picture-postcard view. Glossy Bala Lake with the snow-dusted peaks of Yr Aran in the background. I was staying at my friend Katrina's B&B - it's called Bryniau Golau which is a little piece of paradise.
Not far away is a bizarre village, built as a folly by a quirky architect and which featured as the backdrop to an iconic television series, which is currently being remade (why? why? Why do they remake films and programmes which are already perfect?)
I shall post some photos when I find the disposable camera which I had to buy in The Village.
Anyone know the place I'm talking about?
