Just before leaving for Llanberis, I dropped by my landlady’s home to get an air pressure gauge. Instead of the gauge, I left with a personal guide and Sally’s Norwich terrier, Bindy. I could relax not having to drive.
Bindy was NOT a cooperative passenger. She howled and barked and whined most of the car travel. She was only quiet when we got out to walk.
We first went up to Dolbadarn Castle. Leaves aren’t on the trees yet, but the moss is prevalent and emerald green.
Then we went to the well-defined trail in Padarn County Park through the sessile oaks. I imagine with leaves the forest would be impressive.
Then we came upon a mining pit now used by a diving group.
We went to lunch on Anglesey so I could finally get a photo of the Telford bridge, considered the first modern suspension bridge.
After lunch, my guide took me to the top of the hill overlooking Llanberis. The view was indescribable and surreal. I had not found this overlook in any resource, nor was it easy to get to. The first photo, Dolbadarn Castle, is from this perspective.
Tomorrow morning is a Welsh cake lesson and a trip to Anglesey to return the car.
