Moel Ysgyfarnogod Walk, Gwynedd, North Wales (Part 1 of 2)

On the 19th December last year (which seems quite a long time ago now) the weather forecast was set to be blue skies all around – and you can’t say that too often in North Wales! I therefore decided to do a walk from our new home to one of the smaller summits nearby. Moel Ysgyfarnogod* is only 623 metres (2,044 ft) high, but it provides fabulous views all around and especially across the Glaslyn-Dwyryd* estuary.

Despite the glorious weather, I hardly saw a soul all day, but I was a little taken aback to be stood face-to-face with the animals in pic no. 24.

The first few photos below were taken about an hour before I set off, but I thought I’d include them as they sort of set the scene for what’s to come… (and there’s more tomorrow. 😊)

* I plan to do a post on the Welsh alphabet some time (soon, I promise) to help you to at least try to read and pronounce these words correctly. Many of you may be surprised to learn that there are 29 letters in the Welsh alphabet (despite there being no k, q, v, x or z). Certainly I was!

    • Thank you Anita – it all looks a bit different to Cyprus/Malta, not to mention Switzerland! I gave those llamas a wide berth as they looked slightly menacing – and they were much taller than me! The post box is engraved with a ‘GR’ for George the 5th and, Google tells me that, it would have been installed between 1910 and 1936. I guess you may well have had some of those in Malta too.
