Monday 05 July
A much better weather forecast. We set off just after 10. Walked up to radar station, had coffee on a rocky outcrop above it. Then along to Mynydd Rhiw (304m), down to the road and took a path along a lane with a house where the Welshman directed us…don’t take that path, the council haven’t strimmed it, and it’s full of snakes…. we may have ended up there, past the Saints’ Well,in spite of ourselves. The footpath signs were there to start with, but then we made a steep descent to the track, over rough ground, guarded by brambles. From then on it was straightforward along towards Plas, to join the coastal Path on the cliffs towards Llanfaelryhs, and back. Horses running free on the paths. 1080 feet of climbing. 9.8 miles. A brilliant day.
