We've enjoyed this walk on two previous occasions. Today was different. It didn't rain.
Porthmadog was crowded with holiday makers, but after the short drive to Tremadog we set off up a steep green lane and saw just a couple of dog walkers during the next three hours.
After the steep ascent past clumps of enchanters nightshade, we entered an area of deep bracken. Can you spot Sue fighting her way through (above).
Soon we reached a lone standing stone, with views to Cnicht and the Moelwyns in the distance.
