I AM NOT A NUMBER!

“IAM NOT A NUMBER!” this my dear ladies and occasional gentleman is what Ronald was crying into the WIND as he bowled around the streets of PORTMEIRION in NORTH WALES.

I caught up with him as he was purchasing a two scoop SALTED caramel ICE-CREAM but he made off behind the MERMAID with the two tails, shouting “I WON’T BE A PAWN IN YOUR GAME!”

I snatched another glimpse of his panicked face as a LARGE WHITE balloon escaped from a sticky child’s hand and floated after him across the GIANT CHESS SET.


Leaving me to have  a lovely RELAXING time wandering around the pretty ITALIANATE gardens with quirky TROMPE L’OEIL and statues. If you haven’t seen or don’t know about the television programme ‘THE PRISONER’, don’t bother to read this as the references won’t mean a thing to you.

If you ever are in Snowdonia do visit PORTMEIRION you won’t be dissappointed.

I’ll leave you now as we are going for our morning walk with the dogs on the coastal path, the scenery is STUNNING. Sparkling blue sea and glorious mountains.

Only marred by our morning argument over Ronald’s stubbornness insisting that one of the mountains is SNOWDON, when quite clearly the GIANT one BEHIND it is SNOWDON. He knew he was wrong the first morning but there was no way he can admit it.

Yours Smugly

Celia
