Off to Wales early tomorrow morning for a walk in the Llangollen area, then staying over and doing a walk to take in the Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall on Sunday.
Sort of a treat to myself before having my op next week! :D

Up early tomorrow for a trip across to Ullswater and the Fusedale round.
Not a complete idiot, bits of me are missing.

Hopefully off to Settle in the morning, for a day of waterfalls, caves and kilns.


Confident I won't oversleep this weekend.

More local, out of the door walks for me this weekend.


Don't get me wrong, it's nice to be out in the fresh air and it's great that it isn't raining, but I'm feeling the urge to see and walk along something more than muddy crop fields and urban streets in the dark.


... think I'm going to have to start scheduling a "walking day" into my diary  O0

I'm probably going to jinx the wall-to-wall sunshine forecast for Saturday by saying this but.... I'm heading to the Dales  :D

Which weather forecast are you using Mel, all the ones I've looked at reckon more snow and wintry showers...

Hope the weather stays good for you Mel & you enjoy yourself!  8)   The cloud/mist was down over Cadair Berwyn on Sunday, so got no views whatsoever! It was another world entirely once we'd started climbing higher; thick fog, lots of ice underfoot, frozen snow, very windy....but I still enjoyed it. :)
Going back in Spring/Summer to see what I didn't see at the weekend! :D




I'll be in 'recovery' mode from tomorrow night onwards, so no walking for me this weekend :(

Love little walk tor bagging around Peter Tavy yesterday.  Been resting my pulled groin for the past month, so it was good to get out and walk a few gentle miles.  Beautiful day, if a little nippy. I stopped for a butty and a cuppa, at Prowtytown Rocks.  I had no idea they were there all these years.  What a lovely tranquil  little spot, SX528745, so close to the busiest car park on Dartmoor.

I had a bit of a trek around the Lake District.  Started near Ambleside, then North-west and finished near Loweswater :)  Here's a piccy whilst sat having a cuppa on Black Crag whilst watching the RAF aircraft zoom along Windermere:



Next weekend... a bit more of the same :D

Cheers

Off to Tintagel for 3 days walking the coast and, hopefully, some inland paths - Cornwall is not noted for well waymarked and accessible paths.
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park

Annoyingly, Shearings holidays have given me a great deal of four days holiday, full board at any of their Scottish hotels, for a bargain 120.
As ive been a good customer of their's, they offered me four days for 120, but i am not venturing north in the current weather conditions.
If the weather had been more kind, i would have jumped at the offer, but visiting my friend in Deganwy this morning, the snow was chucking it down, and the Crimea Pass was like a scene from the Artic.
Ive no idea what the weather is like in other parts of the country, but Wales has been hit by serious snowfall last night.
I do not fancy driving a huge distance in questionable weather conditions,  bargain accommodation or not.

If you have time try to visit Chalice waterfall if you've never been before - it's a magical and beautiful place.


Have a great time wherever you go.

The paths around Tintagel are wonderful.   Have a great break Mel.
