Been a bit slack lately with writing and I’m trialling posting this directly to Facebook so please let me know how it works for FB users (if not I’ll repost separately).
Rather than go back I thought I’d catch up with where I am now and hopefully will get back to share the other thousands of photos I have from London.
On Saturday morning after nearly 6 weeks in London I picked up the hire car and headed to Conwy in North Wales. It’s a lovely little town and I’m in one of the best self contained holiday cottages I’ve ever been in (apart from the teeny narrow high stepped staircase). It’s spotless, modern, has a wonderful shower and really well equipped so I can do some cooking.
Today I went up to the top of Mt Snowdon (the lady in the supermarket thought I was being very brave going up on my own until I explained that I was catching the train up and not walking – because she normally walks up)
The train driver who was surely not more than 12 said he goes up in about 1 hour 45 minutes. After getting to the top on the train even if I was fit enough to walk up I know that I’d have to go up looking at the ground because of my fear of heights.
Pretty places on the way to Snowdon
I passed a couple of places that having surfing spots out in the middle of the countryside
A Welsh traffic jam
Looks like we’ve got ourselves a convoy
Llanberis where the train departed
I really want to play scrabble in Welsh – you don’t need vowels
So Allan in Welsh means out – where does that leave Alan Davies
Views on the way up
The sheep were amazing – they could do with some crutching. They are obviously wild and some of them have great hunks of wool hanging off the front and full wool at the back

Paddington enjoyed his day out and got a few compliments.
