When I visited Flint Castle yesterday, I was privy to the most wonderful display of fluffy white clouds, billowing against a cobalt sky.
Flint Castle stands on the banks of the Dee estuary, in Flintshire, North-East Wales. It was built between 1277 – 1284.
The castle was the first of a chain of fortresses built by King Edward I, in his campaign to encircle and conquer Wales. Its most impressive feature is a solitary round tower.
It was the final refuge of King Richard II, before he conceded the crown to Henry IV.
Flint Castle is now maintained by Cadw, a Welsh Government body, that protects, conserves and promotes the building heritage of Wales.
Access is free and via a path. Most parts of the castle are open to the public.
“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread,
places to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”

When we reach the point where we realise that we’re never going to be able to explain the Great Mystery of Life….
Then we stop worrying and debating and we start LIVING!!
“And so we come full circle….
And the end becomes the beginning.”
