On our second day tour with Wherewhenwales.com we went to the Wye Valley.
I will start this post with my favorite site on this tour. Tintern Abbey is about 500 hundred years old. It is partially destroyed. As it turns out, for me, this makes it much more spiritual.
As you can see in the picture below there is no floor, window glass or roof. The abbey was damaged during the English civil war.
This is the abbey from outside.
Inside, the daylight streams in, making it grandeur.
I couldn't stop taking pictures.
I felt so in touch with my spiritual self.
We stopped in Beacon village for lunch.
I saw this sign in a pharmacy window. It reminded me that although I speak English, I do not speak the "King's English."
We both ordered another wonderful meat pie.
The back roads in the Wye Valley are absolutely beautiful.
Monmouth's claim to fame is this medieval gated bridge, the only surviving one in Great Britain.
My new favorite. I have seen this beer in New Zealand and other countries on this trip, but I had not tried one until this day. It is so delicious. If you love ginger then try one if you ever have the opportunity.
Outside we saw this sign. Yuk, I said....
Well, Chuck went for it. This, my friend, is a Bacon Bap.
One more day left.
Will share our last day in Wales in the next post.
