Day 38: Tuesday 24th May

The reception at Plas Y Brein

18 miles today, all along main roads, but surprisingly pleasant, no doubt helped by fabulous weather.  Snowdon was in view for much of the day and the route from Betws-y-coed to Beddgelert took us close.  We passed Plas Y Brenin, the National Mountain Sports Centre, and joined up for a nice lunch at the side of the road with the Snowdon Horseshoe in full view.  Hazel managed to do some washing this morning and used the lunch stop to do some drying.

I dedicated today’s walk to everyone connected to The Holt School in Wokingham; staff, pupils, ex-pupils, Governors, and the parents.  Good luck to everyone doing GCSEs and A-levels.

As a bit of fun how about everyone at the school have a go at learning to pronounce the famous Welsh place:

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

Lots of other things to catch the eye today as well including:

  • A couple of people paraponting near Snowdon
  • A stray sheep (this seems to happen a lot)
  • Hazel found a beach
  • A copper mine
  • Some impressive statues in Beddgelert
  • Chris meets two of his childhood heroes

I can’t close without thanking Louise Jones at Padog B&B where we stayed last night.  Amazing generosity.  If you need a B&B near Llanrwst this is the place to stay:  www.padogbandb.co.uk
