“He holds in his hands the depths of the earth and the mightiest mountains. The sea belongs to him, for he made it. His hands formed the dry land, too.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭95:4-5‬ ‭NLT

Another unexpected gift of a day!

We travelled to Portmeirion, and spent a good 4 or 5 hours exploring there. The thing I loved about Portmeirion is that the man who designed and built this beautiful village – Sir Clough Williams-Ellis – built it to prove that one could develop land without destroying the natural habitat.

The whole place is built into and around and incorporating the hills and cliffs and forest that are naturally occurring there.

Arriving, we felt like we’d been magically transported to the Mediterranean. We were surrounded by beautiful architecture, and these amazing sand flats at low tide.

After our time in Portmeirion, we travelled to Bleddgelert where we were are staying in a hotel called The Royal Goat, a 17th century building converted to a hotel. Bleddgelert is known as “the faithful hound and his story is told on the plaque pictured (far) below.

It was an astounding evening including the best meal we have had so far (and there have been many amazing meals!), and a walk out to the faithful hound’s grave, in the dying light of a magical evening.

I have been reminded again that God’s fingerprints are found everywhere in creation – that there is nowhere I am as close to Him as amongst the green and growing things, and standing small and insignificant amongst the majestic mountains.

One thought on “
