Weekend in North Wales

overcast 9 °C

Last weekend we went to North Wales and had a great time. We started off the weekend (Friday night ) by driving to Aberystwyth in the 27-degree heat.IMG_0829.jpg90_IMG_0830.jpg
Our first stop was at Aberaeron, Dacu Emily and Carter went in to this pub on the wharf and got a pint of lemonade each (dacu got a pint of beer). While mum and I got some fish and chips which were scrumptious.
We carried on our way and got to our apartment amazed because we were so close to the water (and it was so big) we literally had to walk across the road and we were on the beach! We stayed in an apartment called Cardigan Bay which was right on the water front.
At 8:35pm we decided it was still warm enough for a swim in the bay. We swam for about 1 hour and we were all freezing cold. The temperature had dropped about 4 degrees and the sun had started to go down so it was getting quite chilly.
In our apartment, we showered and ate some warm lasagne. It was mouth-watering and there was just enough of it to go around. The apartment was so comfortable and everybody had a good sleep apart from the thunderstorm that woke us up at a very early hour (4:30 am).
(Saturday) At about 8:30 we left to walk up Mt Snowdon. It was raining while we were driving but when we started climbing it was fine but starting to get quite misty and cold. We started walking at 11:00( Dacu took the train) and got half way up by about 1:00 and ate some light food. We carried on until we got to the top. Once we got to the top it was pouring with rain and it was so foggy you couldn’t see past your nose. We wanted to get a picture at the very top but the line to the top was massive.IMG_0877.jpg So, we just got a picture with the top in the very faint background!
We then decided to go inside to get tickets for the train down but there were no tickets left. So, we had to walk down. It took us about 1 hour and 50 minutes. It was very slippery and we all wanted to get in to the car.
Once we were at the car, we ate some more food and got changed into some warm clothes before we carried on to Llangollen and stayed at Dacu’s friends house. We had a BBQ for dinnerIMG_0913.jpg and it was delightful. We then watched a couple of movies before going off to bed at around 11:30.
