It was another Sunday, so we took off for sites in Glamorgan after church.
This is the day I knew my wife really loved me because she visited castles in the rain and was smiling!
|Coity Castle in the rain.|
We visited both Ogmore
Castles and my pics got a bit confused with the rain and all. These castles were built at the westernmost point of Norman holding stolen from the Welsh to keep the Welsh out.
|Ogmore was built to guard the ford to keep those wascally Welsh from rich, stolen, Norman lands in South Wales.|
|The ruins of Ogmore. Or Coity?|
|A sheltered place to shoot at the Welsh in defense of Coity Castle|
|There's something about fording a river with umbrellas that's just a bit odd|
The river is the Ewenny. Nearby, we visited Ewenny Priory and got out of the rain.
|"Parking" is obviously a stolen word from the Welsh original, "Parcio"|
Might as well be Spanglish!
|Pretty sure that's St. Michael, the Archangel|
|Medieval monument from Ewenny|
It appears to be a sprouting Celtic cross
|Medieval tiles at Ewenny |
And we stumbled upon secret gardens.
The sign said so,
With much rain comes much beauty.
|Orchids! growing along the wall at Ewenny|
