Hay on Wye

I had a overnight break at Hay on Wye earlier in the week and it was lovely to get away and just enjoy the beauty of this lovely village.   We stayed at the Swan Hotel which was very friendly and comfortable.Hay on Wye (23 of 74)-4

I have decided not to fill this blog post with books but some of the other things which I saw as I wandered around.

Amazing shop windows, lots of windows had ‘book art’ dotted around in them.  Beautiful local pottery and the a wonderful shop of chandeliers.  Is the collective of chandeliers a lustre?

There is an old ruined castle in the centre and lots of little alleyways and roads with interesting doors.

A delightful waterfall, a bear in the woods and a robin bobbing about in the undergrowth.

It is a beautiful part of the world and it was good to slow down and walk.  Sometimes we speed along on our busy lives and forget the incredible beauty which is around us.
