“Happiness, not in another place, but in this place…

not for another hour, but for this hour.”

 Walt Whitman

What a beautiful place is Llyn Brenig.   Situated in the unspoilt countryside of the Denbigh Moors, on the border between the counties of Conwy and Denbighshire, it is one of the largest lakes in Wales.

There are nature trails, archaeological trails, picnic areas, water sports, a visitor centre, an exhibition telling the story of Llyn Brenig and its archaeological history, and a restaurant with good food and great views from the terrace.

The Road Less Travelled


As the sun sets on the old year, may we all journey Onwards and Upwards on the road less travelled – following every rainbow, climbing every mountain, reaching for the stars, living life to the full, with new-found fervour and heart-stirring passion. Life truly is an amazing gift. I want to share it with you.

I feel an awesome excitement deep within me. I love my life – it’s growing into something quite magnificent. I don’t even feel like ‘me’ any more. I’m a stranger to myself. Who is this animated, inspired, wildly passionate, enthusiastic woman? I feel like a child again! I have stepped out into the glorious Light of a New Day.

May the New Year of 2015 bring to us all the fulfilment that our heart’s yearn for.

“There is a road in the hearts of all of us,

hidden and seldom travelled,

which leads to an unknown, secret place.”

Chief Luther Standing Bear

Explore, Dream, Discover

The Harbour, Rhos on Sea, N Wales

“Twenty years from now,
you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do,
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbour,
catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore, dream, discover!”
Mark Twain

Venetian Sunset


“All rivers, even the most dazzling, those that catch the sun in their course,

go down to the ocean and drown.

And life awaits man as the sea awaits the river.”

Simone Schwartz-Bart

Essence of Beauty


“The appearance of things change according to the emotions,

and thus we see magic and beauty in them,

while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.”

Kahlil Gibran
