Day out on Cadair Idris
It was our wedding anniversary yesterday so we bundled Morgan off to school and arranged for him to go home with a friend, took the day off work and had a day out together.
We had planed to walk up Cadair Idris in the sunshine but typically the day started off with pouring rain. It look as though it would clear though so we decided to go anyway. Anna had never walked up Cadair Idris before and hadn’t been walking for a while so was feeling a little unfit. She didn’t seem to ‘enjoy’ the walk up the steps to start with, but once the path leveled off a bit towards Llyn Cau she seemed a little happier.
It did rain on and off on the way up and when we stopped for lunch at the lake. There wasn’t going to be much of a view from the top and I don’t think Anna really fancied slogging all the way to the summit so we sat by the lake for a bit and wandered around. I played with my new camera and used its panoramic feature to take a view of the lake. The results aren’t amazing, but it still impresses me the way it stitches it altogether within the camera!
As you can see it was pretty misty and murky higher up. Nothing unusual for Cadair Idris then!
We then turned back and took a gentle walk back down, just as the sun started to come out. Once back at the car and changed we headed off to the hotel on Tal-y-Llyn for a cream tea before heading home and looking forward to a chinese take-away for dinner so that we didn’t have to cook.
Not the most romantic of days but it was nice to be able to spend some time together. I wonder what we’ll do next year?
