For the last ten days we've been in North Wales. We've just got back. I thought, before turning in, I'd have a quick look at some of the photos we took. The other day I took these -which are strung together to create a panorama- outside the chapel at Llandecwyn, in the hills above Talsarnau, near Harlech. On the left, in the distance, you can almost see to the end of the Llyn Peninsula. Just "round the corner" from the visible tip of the peninsula will be Aberdaron, where RS Thomas was vicar for eleven years. As for the hills, it's impossible to describe which is which without writing on the picture. Anyone who is interested will have to try comparing it to the map - unless they know them all already. Visible -among many others- are Moel y Gest (just across the road from the Portmadog Aldi store), Moel Hebog, Snowdon,Y Lliwedd, the Glyders and Cnicht. The obvious island is Ynys Gifftan.
Unfortunately, Tryfan -probably my favourite Welsh mountain- is not visible. We passed it on the way home today, though, and took this photo of climbers climbing on the part of the mountain known as The Milestone Buttress.
We had a great time. If I go into more detail I'll end up staying up most of the night, so I'll be sensible and stop at this point!
