Oystercatcher’s On The Mussel Beds

I absolutely love to sit and watch the wading birds on the coast. The sound of the waves and the birds haunting calls is just so beautiful. I’m so far behind with uploading so many videos and photographs, each video seems to take so long to upload to You Tube. I think over Christmas I will just upload all my recent videos taken on the coasts and estuaries and merge them into one long video, if I can get the editing right;)

It seems a shame for me not to share them with others who may enjoy them too.

In the meantime I wish everyone a lovely Christmas and a peaceful and healthy new year.

Three of my child’s friends will not be here to celebrate Christmas this year, they all died instantly in a car crash in November.  Hug your loved ones and cherish all those you love. Life can be wiped out in the blink of an eye. We take tomorrow for granted, but tomorrow may not come. Live for today, it’s a beautiful gift that we all often take for granted.

God bless X

Hello November 

What an absolutely beautiful day. November 1st 2015. Here in Wales UK we have been out in our T Shirts all morning, no breeze at all, not a whisper. Beautiful sunshine and down by the lake even the dragonflies are flying about. We saw a couple of wasps or bees buzzing around too.  Very odd weather considering Christmas is only 7 weeks away. I’m not complaining one bit. As someone who has Multiple Sclerosis I can’t tolerate the heat without feeling ill so to be able to get out and about in this beautiful warm weather at this time of year is such a bonus, one I’m so thankful for too. Always grateful for small mercies.


Hidden, Haunted Old Abandoned Cemetery

This is the old abandoned cemetery in Halkyn, North Wales. It is hidden away & you could drive past & not even know it was there.

It lies high above the estuary which separates Wales from England. Across the estuary lies Liverpool and it’s docks/dockyards. Today many of them stand empty, many have been converted into apartments and a few are now hotels like famous Albert Dock.

The cemetery is haunted by a Pirate and his dog. The Pirate hanged himself here and his faithful hound stayed with his dead master. I am definitely not into anything paranormal but after seeing this old place on many videos and the effect it has on people and their paranormal investigative equipment I wanted to see the place and experience it for myself. I also wanted to see if I could pick up any ‘good vibes’. I didn’t.

This was my first visit there in the spring 2015 after my friend filmed there and he was visibally shaken by the experience. He is a paranormal sensitive and felt the place had bad and evil vibes.

On my second visit I lost around 50% of my hearing in one ear.

i can fully understand why this old graveyard was abandoned.

If I could find someone to come with me I would quite like to return and take some photographs of the graves for my photography blog, but nobody wants to go there. You would have to visit the place to get a sense of just how dark the place is, and I don’t mean because of a lack of light. On my second video it clearly picks up a dog barking which we did not hear until we played the video back.

An Ancient Living Yew Tree With A Difference

I had the great privilege to be in the company of an ancient living Yew tree. It is reputed to be around 700 years old at least. As I stood next to it in complete awe, I thought of the significance of touching something alive that was so old & it brought tears to my eyes. It was certainly a WOW moment. I mean this tree had survived and continues to thrive, how amazing.

Even more amazing is it is believed that John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church had preached from this tree! As a young girl I attended Sunday School at a Methodist church. You see this tree is unique as it has a pulpit built into it.

What a truly special tree it is & no doubt I will visit it often now that I have found it. It is in the tiny village of Nanyglyn in Denbighshire, North Wales, UK. Just by the church there is a bridge with a beautiful river & a bench where I sat for ages & listened to the birdsong.

Here is the little video I filmed of the Ancient Yew Tree with a pulpit built into it.
