Wales, Then and Now

Aberdovey 1985

In my earlier posts I mentioned that I had visited Wales several times and this time I returned to an old favourite.

The picture above is Aberdovey in 1985 and this is Aberdovey today…

Aberdovey Wales

In 1968 I went on holiday to Aberdovey at Plas Pantiedal Holiday village near Aberdovey and one day we visited Lake Bala…

  6. Some beautiful family photographs! Mind you, boules at Aberdvey does look a bit parky!


    • I remember that being a decent day weather wise. I think the photo has faded. It was probably Bonusprint or Trueprint. They were bad for that. I have scanned as may in as possible before they disappear to nothing!


  7. Love the then-and-now photos…a nice way to celebrate the travels.


  8. So much fun to be able to compare the places through the photos. Sally is taller now. 😉
