Part 7


On the Sunday, I also visited Porthmadog model railway show (a full report will appear on this blog after this holiday series is complete).

Tues we took Thomas swimming for the first time at Glaslyn Leisure Centre, which he really took to, splashing about really enthusiastically. Then I visited the Purple Moose Brewery and found some half price bottles of merry x-moose (see this post : ) and then we went to Antur Waunfawr (an ok craft shop and rubbish cafe that shuts at 3pm, just as people want a cup of tea!!!) before ending up at Llanberis for a mooch around and to book early-bird tickets for the Snowdon Mountain railway.

Weds we took the Ffestiniog from Tan-y-Bwlch to Blaenau and back (the Tanygrisiau waterfall was particularly pretty!) and walked around Plas Tan-y-Bwlch gardens - lovely rhodos! We followed this with a tour of the inigo jones slateworks near Dinas when the rain came. Photos below:

Myself trying a hand at slate engraving, which I was rubbish at - it's very difficult actually!
