Walking In Wales

We decided to walk to a community cafe which was just up the road taking the scenic route...  Across some marshland... And over the river... But first we played 'Pooh Sticks'!  Llyn Dinas Hugo found a rope swing... And Sime found an abandoned glove & frying pan... We joined the road for the last bit of the walk... Past the strange little bunk houses... And we arrived at the cafe... Which was closed!!! So we set off around the other side of the lake... Little did we know how long it would take & we were hungry too! It certainly was beautiful... (But we went over 8 of those stiles)! But hunger was causing us to flag... Nearly at the end... Looking back... The last hour felt like we were getting nowhere... But we finally reached the end... Just before it got too dark... 4 hours longer than we'd expected... But we still had time for smiles... Just about!!! Kay & Sime xx


Hugo managed to get us online...  Our ISP supplies us with mobile WIFI, but it took a bit of working out!  So here's the story so far... It was a really long journey on Friday – nearly 11 hours on the road, but we had decided to drive the length of Wales, instead of taking the motorway & the scenery since arriving in Wales has been spectacular!  We love being in the mountains & our destination certainly hasn’t disappointed. Far from it, it’s a beautiful place & we are having a fantastic time!

Our peaceful haven amongst the mountains... Which is just perfect... And we are very happy to be here... Our caravan has surpassed our expectations – it’s cosy, in a perfect location & surrounded by
