This was a lovely walk in bright sunshine; walk number 5 in Alex Kendall's 'Snowdonia South' Cicerone guide.
The route is described by Alex in fine detail, and concentration was needed to stay 'on course'. It was a similar route to one with which we are familiar, plus a very enjoyable woodland start on good paths that had recently been trimmed, and an ascent through fields and over stone stiles that seemed to be little used. Sue is pictured above on this ascent.
Blackberries are still filling the hedgerows here, and there are lots of sloes to be harvested. A few field mushrooms were collected to enhance our supper, and I pocketed a few shells for Isabella as we strolled for over 2km along the beach from Llanfair to Harlech, and the end of a very pleasant afternoon in brilliant weather with fine views to both the Rhinogs and the high summits in the Snowdon massif.
We had enjoyed a flask of tea out of the wind at the highest point of the walk, before Sue poured some of her share over her arm, then we descendents slowly to the beach.
