From Bristol to Wales
Before going to Wales, we thought a visit to the local sight
would be a good idea. We chose "Noah's
Ark Zoo Farm". The zoo was OK, but after a while we suspected the had
an agenda. And yes, click on the right-hand picture.
All pointless arguments against the evolution theory were
mentioned. Not at all realize that when we talk about evolution,
differences between species are kind of crucial. At least the did not
front the stupid and very wrong statement "Humans can have evolved from
apes, because then apes would have been extinct.
None the less, the visit was pleasant, it was a lot of animals
and they looked like they were well cared for. The animal's areas
looked well and not overcrowded.
The highway over River Severn to Wales was just a tiny little
bit bigger than what we are used to from Norway (lol). Since I never
get aggressive driving when in a stressful situation, I think everybody
was happy with Arild driving.
Would we like to drive mostly highway to the first overnight
stop at Plas-y-Wern? Hardly! Small country roads leaves more to be
seen, and so it was. But we've had forgotten about those damned British
opening hours. That meant no late lunch for us at a pub. But we've got
a trip to Ogmore
instead. Weather was nice, it was lots of horses and sheep ... and
ruins, which we just love.
The horses were beautiful, it was a river and stepping stones.
None of us got wet, but we did not pat the horses.
You may use the picture if identified.
