'Twixt Bog and Sea
"Dovey Junction"

Few enough, the souls
Who've chosen to embark, here
At Dovey Junction.

Sun-green men striding
Generous through the long grass
Are small in number.

Those handsome, sinewed
Warriors, battle eager,
Will not board today.

Free of Elphin's net,
Taliesin broods inland,
Has bought no ticket.

And we, running late,
Can whistle for a refund
From Arriva Trains.

Not quite "Adlestrop", perhaps, but that's where I was this morning, on my way back to Bristol from a lightning visit to my brother and his partner in Borth, with extra cousins and dogs thrown in gratis. What a lovely break! The weather on Tuesday in particular was glorious for our walk along the coastal path from Borth (almost) to Aberystwyth. I took some very pretty pictures, which you can see over at Flickr. Here, for example, is the view from their back yard:

But in some ways this was my favourite, a short way down the beach:

Well, it's the way LJ does the image holders (I think this probably depends on the journal style, so it works differenty for different people--this is the one irritating thing about mine). It'll just be a little picture, with a massive lot of space around to make sure there's room, or whatever. :p Oh well.

I can see that could be a bit irritating. Does it not display that way if it's under a cut?

Nope, then I click on the cut and everything shows in the nice old-style comment page layout. ;)

At least these are actual pictures. It does the same thing for tiny little graphics, like animated smilies and stuff. Nothing like stretching out the entire page for a smiley face. :p

How bizarre! Okay, I'll definitely bear that in mind for future posts.
