Out in the wilds of Wales

Today we drove to Llambredis to get the train part way up Snowdon in the Snowdonia National Park......the idea then was that David and Shane would go and try to walk to the top....me I was undecided! I had my book along in case I decided to sit and wait. When we got to the train station we were told the train was only going part of the way as it was too windy up the top, and they would only run the train if they had 40 people. So we paid for tickets (fully refundable if the train didn't run) and wandered off to fill in a couple of hours.

Found this church built in 1885 in the village

Was amazing inside
When we got back the train was running and was full, so off we went,

Part of the track,

Looking back down to the village and lake,

Must be very cold and windy here, no trees for miles,

Happy passengers!!

Most amazing countryside, when we got back we headed off to look at a water fall we had seen from the train...quite a lot of up for me, but luckily some photos opportunities for me to stop at and get my breath!!
Isn't the stone work here amazing?

And after much huffing and puffing on my part ......the waterfall!

On our way out we found these castle ruins.
Happy travels!!
