It was a delight to arrive in my home country of Wales and Wales personified the image that everyone has of it, which is that it is very, very wet! We’ve been on the walk for 5 weeks, this is the start of week 5 and over the previous 4 weeks we’ve had maybe one and a half, two days of intermittent rain, but as soon we enter God’s Country it rains and rains and rains!
We’ve now had 48 hours of rain with the odd bit of sky.
So Snowdon was quite an experience yesterday, it’s a lot easier to climb than Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike. There were quite a few sheep and goats on the mountain but much to our disappointment by the time we got up there the mist, the rain and everything meant we couldn’t see much at all, we could barely see the train!
As we descended down, the skies opened up and we caught sight of the beautiful countryside of Wales. Today to finish off, we had the beauty of Harlech Castle to look at and what surprised me was the number of English people in North Wales, they’re all attempting the English language and all very lovely. So thank you, diolch i chi.
