When the first snow fell on Jane Austen’s birthday on 16th December, I didn’t think it would still be snowing a whole month later! Our recent trip to the Pembrokeshire coast turned into a bit of an expedition as we battled the elements.
Here’s our local beach covered in snow. I’ve never walked on frozen sand before and the icicles on the cliffs were simply stunning.
The Preseli Hills looked especially beautiful in the snow and we headed up their on my birthday and had a little car picnic, watching everyone sledging down the hills. But I’m a bit worried about the inhabitants at the end of this farm track and hope they’ve got plenty of food and are managing to keep warm!
And here’s me wearing as many woolly items as possible (and a pair of sparkly birthday earrings too!) It was a truly memorable trip and I even managed to do some work – clocking up 9,000 words of the new novel.
