Sneaky Birthday Stroll   10 comments

IMG_2596

Last year on my Birthday we managed a brief walk on Ysgyryd Fawr in a Thunderstorm. This year the weather was much kinder (although no champagne) and I managed to skive a few hours away from my work e-mail for a quick skip up Bryn Arw. It started cloudy but quickly developed into a glorious warm summers day

No finer way to spend your lunch hour on your birthday

The colours of the trees and the wild flowers, especially the bluebells under a clear blue sky were mesmerising

Over all too soon before back to work drudgery, but great memories nonetheless.

Happy Birthday to me! (from 2 weeks ago) 🙂

  2. Happy birthday indeed. The weather at the moment is pretty good (and hot!!). Looks like a good way of taking advantage of it.

    • Thanks Steve, it was actually a couple of weeks ago though – as usual I’m a couple of weeks behind with the blog. A perfect day though, warm enough to sit on the top but not so hot as to be uncomfortable

  3. I’ve carefully reviewed the photos and I have to tell you that, if you look carefully, it appears that somebody is following you! I think you may have a stalker! (-:

  4. Lovely part of the country you live in and that’s my kind of walk- upland but still rural, passing through different levels of scenery and terrain. Happy Birthday.
