2 Days with Mr Hillyer

Kellys Dad took some time off work to come and visit before we leave North Wales. He likes his walking so we had to really good days out on the hill.

Day 1 - We started near the Pen Y Gwryd, walked up to the pass to avoid the ludicrous £10 parking charge and took to Pyg track to the Snowdon summit. We then took the long way back over Carnedd Ugain and Crib Coch before descending down to Pen y Pass for ice cream. We had planned a slightly longer day but this was better and we all had a good day out followed by a very nice meal in the Rhos Fynach (Rhos on Sea). Its the third time I have been there and every time they have offered up excellent meals and the specials are always very appealing.

Day 2 - With the weather turning a bit we decided to scrap the Carneddau and stay coastal. We parked up at Aber Falls and went to see the falls before heading up the road, over towards Bwlch Y Ddeaufaen, up Foel Lwyd, on to Tal Y Fan and then descending using some of the North Wales Footpath to the Sychnant Pass, Conwy Mountain and to a second car in Conwy.

To this:

We have just returned home from 3 days of van 'refurbishment'. We took a trip to my Grandparents house as my Granddad has the tools, the space and more importantly plenty of experience with woodwork.
