Images of Wales - Travel Tuesday

Recently we visited family in Wales.  Soon, we'll be going again.  We're very fortunate in this way.  This doesn't happen every year, this doesn't happen every other year.  But for some wonderful, unknown reason, this year, within the space of a few months, we will be going again. 

I thought I'd share some of my favorite images from our March trip.  We were there for less than a week, so didn't take that many photos.  Of the remainder, most are actually more appropriate for a Tombstone Tuesday post than anything else.  I'll get to work on that soon.

These are the views from Meridian Quay, a new 29-storey building in Swansea.  At 29 floors, it is the tallest building in Wales.  Seems almost miniscual compared to the grandeur of buildings in the U.S., but it's a big deal in Wales.  And it is beautiful.  The top three floors consist of The Grape and Olive Restaurant, which provides incredible 360 degree views across the marina, bay and city.  These are our own photos, taken when we stopped in for tea one afternoon.

I love the coastline here: wide, white beach, and the city just springs up right next to it!


Shore on one side, mountains on the other,
with a city squeezed in between!
Looking across the bay.
Swansea Marina.
You Are Here!

This shot of a window at the restaurant is, for some odd reason,
my favorite of the whole bunch!
