Wales - Day Seven, Part Two

Welcome to the Welsh coastline. It was a bit of an adventure to get there, but completely worth the drive.
Aren't we so glamourous in the wind? Pretty sure my mom hates me for loving these pictures so much.
Papa Hutch is in the picture. You just have to squint. It's like a Where's Waldo in Wales.
See what I mean about the glamour? 
Can you hear me now? Good.
Welsh place names are just fun to say. Plus we were on the most southerly point. Who even knew southerly was a word?
And now, welcome to Coch Castle. The same duke involved in Cardiff Castle restored Coch for his family's vacation home. So the inside is decoration in a whimsical style of the late 19th-early 20th century. I loved this place tucked away on a hillside overlooking a river and the valley. 
Apparently my mom is the castle ghoul.
Ness is a BRAND in the UK. She's practically famous.

So creepy, your mom the ghoul!!! I am LOVING these posts. Keep 'em coming. And, PS, why does it look like you are unaffected by the wind but everyone else is all windblown? You are good.
