Well Dad has picked a good week to go back-packing! Weather has been great for late September. Dad and Bob headed off on the train on Monday to Aberdovey. They then walked along the beach to Twywn and headed inland 4 miles to the campsite which was next to a steam railway. Monday nights menu was fit for a king ... cup-a-soup, noodles with a sprinkling of mature cheddar cheese and the final touch - a sachet of tomato ketchup which Dad had picked up from a cafe earlier in the day.
Spoke to Dad earlier today and they were just below the summit of Cadair Idris. They were just having lunch. Dad's usual of cheese and onion sandwiches! Great weather, great views. Apparently yesterday they found a nice spot for lunch but it was a bit whiffy. At first they thought Dad's mature cheddar had matured a bit too much. Only turned out that were sharing their picnic spot with a dead sheep !
Tonight they are camping (somewhere with no mobile phone signal!) and then they will be heading back home tomorrow.
