It all started with a boot full. That is to say a car boot not a boot on the foot. “But wait” I hear you cry “Surely you’re not going on another trip so soon after the other one?”
Well, from the look of that boot,with cases, I would say we are going on another trip and, this time, it’s Lake Vyrnwy about 50 miles north of us. The navigation system estimates the journey time to be about one and a half hours. Welsh roads don’t y’ know (one car wide).
The journey proved to be fairly straightforward and we arrived at the hotel without any problems. The hotel is the large building on the hillside in the distance beyond the lake. Just in case you wondered it is all of that building.
It is a nice hotel with two separate seating areas and we had a room overlooking the lake so you’re bound to get some views from the room later on.
The sitting room above had a small balcony outside with some tables and chairs.
Our room isn’t going to be ready until later this afternoon, which we expected anyway, so we decided to drive up to the far end of the lake to have a look at a waterfall.
We parked the car and set off on our walk but hadn’t gone very far when a very friendly local decided he wanted to join us. There was no “Do you mind if I join you?” – he just joined us. Here is Amanda with our new friend.
He eventually became tired of our company and we left him behind. A little further on we spotted these mountaineering sheep on quite a steep slope.
Continuing with our walk we came up to the brow of a hill and suddenly there it was.
We were determined to get to the foot of the falls so we pressed on which involved crossing the river. Not so far to go now.
Then we could see the waterfall in all its glory.
Finally we reached the foot of the falls. The view from here wasn’t quite as good as from further back but it was a lot noisier.
It was now late afternoon so we went back to our hotel. Our room was ready so we took our luggage up and had our first look out of the window. We couldn’t really complain about that could we?
So, dinner this evening, then it’s off to bed ready to wake to a new day.
