Ardwell (Holiday photos #2)

Ardwell is the smallest of places, a tiny linear village which you may well miss if you blink at the wrong time. Loooking back I cannot now remember why I first stopped there: only a mile and a half from my campsite so if I'm going TO the site why would I stop just before it and if I am leaving the site then why would I stop almost immediately? But it has become an essential part of every visit to the area with mindless hours spent parked next to the beach accompanied by a gentle couple of miles through bluebell filled woodland up to the 'big house'.

I told myself that on this trip I would "do something different", maybe park near the church instead of the beach or take a different walk but familiarity won out and I spent an incredibly relaxing day doing the same as I usually do 😉 which amount to very little!


Pictures enlarge to full screen, and if you click on the first one you can scroll through them all.










The photos do look remarkably similar to my last visit in May 2019 (not blogged, so please believe me) and almost identical to those taken in July 2018.

  1. We crave doing normal things here, no desire to do anything exciting, just see family when we can and enjoy the freedoms we now have.

    1. Quite right too Marlene, excitement can be very overrated 🙃

  2. Sometimes doing very little is good Jayne, especially when you have sunshine and a view like the first photo :)

    1. Thanks Eunice, what you don't see is me sitting in a down jacket and windproof walking trousers . . .

  3. It looks lovely there and who can blame you for relaxing and doing absolutely nothing but take in the view and enjoy a woodland walk.

    1. I am not very good at "doing nothing" Eileen, but I worked hard at it during that week 😉

  4. Thanks for a breath of fresh air with your photos. Looks very relaxing with beach & bluebell woods to wander. Freezing here & in strict lockdown again......miserable!!! Take care, stay safe & hugs.

    1. Thank you Susan. Sorry to hear you are in lockdown again, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the UK "freedoms" are further curtailed before long.

  5. Sometimes doing something or visiting somewhere that we have done over and over again can be the most relaxing thing to do. I never understood until recently how people could holiday in the same destination over and over with their families, now I do. The relaxation familiarity brings is amazing, returning to Sark the other year for a second holiday made it all the more special to me.

    1. It is very peaceful Jules, I think next time I will go in the van and then be able to sit and do nothing for hours ☺️.

  7. A very interesting and attractive place. I've never been there but would like to make it before I expire.

    1. Graham, thank you for taking the time to wade throughmy recent holiday posts. Sorry for the delay but I'm away (again!) and it has been difficult to get online.

      I hope you get here one day, it's a peaceful little oasis in a noisy world.

Thank you for leaving comments, I love receiving them; sometimes they are the only way I know I am not talking to myself . . . 😊
