A gentle finish to the blog rendezvous weekend

Rachel, Dave and Richad

After Saturday’s blog rendezvous activities, described here and here, we spent Sunday catching up on our daylight deficit by taking a walk up Mynydd Drws-y-Coed. Dave, Brendan, Richard and I met at Rhyd Ddu and started our gentle walk. After only about 10 mins of walking, we’d already got our feet soaking wet as the ground was very boggy around Llyn y Gader. As we walked through the forest of Parc Cae Cra, the ground didn’t get much better and I got completely covered in mud falling over multiple times (we obviously didn’t get sufficiently muddy during Sunday’s activities!). Soon we were out of the quagmire and onto a good path, which led up a really quite lovely ridge to the top of Mynydd Drws-y-Coed. Once on the top we had a healthy feast of blog rendezvous leftovers, including crisps, lemon pancakes with sultanas, lemon drizzle cake and chocolate biscuits! Once fed, we walked onto the summit of Y Garn and then back down to Rhyd Ddu.

A rather gentle Sunday, with far less obstacles than Saturday’s mine trip!

  1. Just can’t believe this nice weather! 🙂 Is this really in North Wales?? 🙄

    It’s a pity I couldn’t go, up to the last moment I was hoping but I could not take any holiday just now … work … we all know. :angry:

    On second thoughts had I been there it would have been a hell of a hard decision to pick between the walk and the climbing!!

    But I’m glad you had a great time and I thought of you in Bucharest… :love:
