After two good days of touring, we decided to take it easy. It rained most of the day, which wasn’t a problem, but the wind was. Although the temperature was the same as it had been, the wind drives the cold into your bones. A quick trip to Bethesda for groceries (including Hobnobs, beer and wine) and we were back to a cozy fire in the wood burning stove.
Rousing ourselves from our lethargy, we took a walk around the village.
The walk took us to Bethesda (the villages are quite close to each other). We realized why our landlady suggested we could walk there for our groceries (when I was still stunned from my first experience driving in Britain). Our reaction was “Walk? Really?” Little did we know how close it was or easy to get to.
After our walk, my Kansas traveling companion treated me to a childhood comfort food.
Sausage and potatoes fried, sautéed onions and an over-easy egg topped with cold baked beans. I have a new comfort food. The sausage wasn’t actually part of it, but we decided to add it and it was delicious. The sausage was from a Conwy butcher.
And so the day ends.
The possible plans: Betwys y Coed and Bodnant Gardens
