spring visit to winter

Having been a bit quite thought there should be an update, as travels have occurred beyond the weekly commute.
A visit was made to north Wales, having not been there for some 36 years or more there was a little bit of excitement! She has been several times in recent years, alone. This trip was for a memorial and celebration of the life of someone close to the family.

as usual it was a bit grey, though mainly, on the saturday the weather was dry if very very windy. Snow on the tops.

I didn't travel to the hight bits, above Cwm Idwal, where the ashes were scattered and the boots hung up to rest. Though some close friends did.....see below

Am pleased to report that the accomodation at Idwal Cottage Youth Hostel was very comfortable.
