On our cruise around the British Isles, one of our first stops was in Wales. After docking, we took a tour of a quaint little village in Wales, Betws-y-Coed. Located in the Snowdonia National Park, it was founded in the late sixth century. Today it is home to a population of less than 600 people. Regardless of it's size, the village was just what we imagined an English village would look like. Beautifully manicured surroundings wherever we walked. This photo is representative of the houses there, with stone walls and a beautiful flower box. Right out of a British novel.
