Saturday 24 September 2022 - Pwllheli parkrun and a railway journey to Blaenau Ffestiniog

Another lovely day in Porthmadog. Above, our breakfast view.

Then Sue and I went to the Hafan Pwllheli parkrun. 34 of us jogged up and down the beach composed of soft sand. Here we are, waiting for the 9am start.

Then we returned to Porthmadog and took the 10:30 train to Blaenau Ffestiniog. We were joined by my brother Dave, who's a member, so the price was relatively modest.

It was a lovely ride, and a great way to finish our holiday.

It's not easy to take pictures from the train. These are the best I could manage.

Back in Porthmadog, a half marathon race from near Blaenau was preparing a welcome for the finishers.

Then we packed up, cleaned up, and returned to Timperley, after a most enjoyable week, albeit lacking the pleasure of Isabella's company yesterday, as her mum had a day off.

A mug of tea looks like fine way to travel on the railway!

I remember doing the full return trip on that railway in the mid Eighties, when there was an off-season offer for Gwynedd residents for the grand sum of £1.

No £1 tickets these days, and you have to be pre-booked, checked on, and you can't just get on and off at random for walking purposes. It's all to do with finances. They run fewer trains and ensure that they are all full. At least the service still operates, so we have to be thankful for that.
