|Hidden Secrets Revealed on Tywyn Beach|
During the winter months it has often been possible to see parts of the Ancient Petrified Forest, hidden under the shifting sands of Tywyn Beach. The photo I am sharing here today and with Outdoor Wednesday is one of many photos of the forest I have taken recently.
On my Travel Tales blog I devoted a post to this fascinating phenomenon Ancient Forest - Tywyn Beach - Wales if you are interested.
Some of you may well have even seen the forest on television as it has been featured on the national news in the UK.

In a recent post on Travel Tales I shared photos of Market Day in Bansko and one of the photos featured this gentleman selling some unusual items. Curious? Then do please visit the post, Market Day in Bansko.

As I am joining Alphabet Thursday today I decided to use these photos of Orange Fruit as it is Letter O this week. The fruit in the first photo are either Tangerines, Mandarins, Satsumas, or maybe Clementines, all members of the Orange family. I think they were Satsuma's but not sure if I am right. Do you agree with me?
I hope no one takes offence with the second photo but the market trader obviously had a risqué sense of humour!
Both photographs were taken during a recent visit to Bansko in Bulgaria, a trip I have featured in some recent posts on my other blog Travel Tales including one on the Market

In a recent post on Travel Tales I shared photos of Market Day in Bansko and one of the photos featured brightly coloured blankets, similar to the one this young man is wearing. One of the comments I received mentioned that they reminded the commenter of Native American Woven Blankets, as they did me. Hannah this photo is for you. Although this man was in fact touting for trade for a restaurant, wearing a traditional blanket to keep warm was a good advertising ploy. My brother-in-law and I stopped and had a conversation with him and he explained that traditionally Bulgarian shepherds wear these blankets in the mountains when they are out with their herds.
What a colourful way to keep warm.
