Welsh Coast

Walking along the coast of Wales from Aberystwyth to Borth. Not much level ground. 40 mph wind which was off the ocean fortunately as the fences are mostly on the land side of the trail. Sheep are more important than tourists.

The quaint town of Aberystwyth

The base of the trail.  It goes UP.

York

The old city of York is a really nice town.  Tons of history and great beer.

Roman wall on the bottom, medieval wall on top

Holy Trinity Catholic Church - 800 years old



wood pigeons everywhere

St. Mary's Abbey - almost 1000 years old












Good thing they put up the wires to keep the pigeons away



the red bricks are something the Romans did




Inside York Minster


York Minster looms over everything
