Halfway up, faint right-to-left rising diagonal line. One third of the way along follow a gulley up. Along to the high point and then a scramble down and along the back of the ridge.
Dinner followed by songs by Rui (very good).
A blast up to (almost) where the A5 meet the sea.
For a couple of days wandering (or wondering) around Tryfan.
and avoiding the The Royal Marine's Mountain Leader course
Some decent views on the way up.
Some typical (for us) views from the top.
With some bits that were nice and staircase like, with other's where Aiddy needed a rope (no photos of those, he was too busy not looking).
Awesome pick's by Bri and Mart, and some decent route finding too. Especially when we were rescued by a couple of students while wandering (or wondering) around on the summit
Thanks chaps. Mega as always.
...from cleaning and clearing with a cuppa down on the harbour wall.
We bought a house.
It has a small back door.
It has a shed-like thing.
And a pot plant for the garden to complement the view of the pub next door.
And a very short walk to the harbour.
Stay tuned for details of how we didn't really but a house, it's more of a project, or a place to look after.
Well, work in progress...
Shorter than planned due to the Big C.
Great brunch sat nearly in a cool wild flower meadow.
Ewok, the master of finding the cosy places.
Dad joking about isolating before the Boardmasters Festival hits him hard when Covid comes home.
It was worth it says F, just don't say that to H.
Well, I guess it took us seventeen months (almost as long as the gap since the last update of c r o s s o a k), although one of us was suspiciously ill after a week in Seattle in January so maybe that was it too.
Cricket at Lords was so much fun that we went again.
With F, F & H.
Plus: we upgraded the walk from Paddington by taking the scenic canal-side option.
A was playing in The Hundreds. Lovely day, until the rain. But that just stopped the men's game ;-)
5 mins to change the tap. 20 mins to find the spare in the shed. 2 hours tidying the shed out of sheer frustration from not being able to find the spare tap straight away.
Low and loud training hover over the house (at least we hope it was training). Made a bit of a challenge for the noise cancellation on the conference call.
