It was a few years since I’d been to Aberystwyth before we launched our fab lowest unique bid competition to win a holiday to nearby New Quay. I had a quick day out in New Quay and came back via Aber to take some photos for work recently, and it really has given me a taste for going back. In particular, I love the Red Kite centre, it’s so fascinating to see these amazing birds with such a stunning backdrop as the lake. The last time we went to see the red kites, I was on the back of hubby’s motorbike. Oh how times have changed! I’m dying to get over there again now though, Libby would love seeing the birds and it would be great to take the dogs for a walk somewhere so beautiful. As you can see, we’re mainly confined to muddy fields or roads at the moment on our walks.
I’ve just written a blog post for work about Aberystwyth, so here is an extract from it about the fantastic red kite centre in case you are considering going yourself. I would personally wait for the weather to cheer up a bit, although it is open all year round and even on a dry winter’s day, it would be a glorious place for a walk.
