Part 8

The final few days...

Thursday: Snowdon Mountain Railway, electric mountain cafe and play 'den', Llanberis Lake railway and Dinorwic quarry walk. Images below:

The view from 'Rocky Valley', due to high winds this is as far as we could go, and the summit cafe is being rebuilt so it doesn't go all the way to the top anyway!

The view from the viewpoint high up in the Dinorwic quarries (all perfectly safe and on a public footpath by the way!)

Then Friday I got up early to walk down to Hafod y Llyn and have a look at the Nanmor river bridge, before we explored Plas Brondanw gardens and then had lunch and an ice cream in Beddgelert. It then started raining, so we aborted to Porthmadog to check out the maritime museum (closed -opens late May!) and the Snowdon Mill play centre/art gallery. Saturday we went home via Conwy butterfly jungle and the Portmeirion seconds shop in Stoke [much cheaper than the seconds shops in North Wales].

The Nanmor river bridge.

Plas Brondanw

The butterfly jungle - one lands on me!

Wow. Thanks for that... I never saw an up to date picture of Dinorwic before. It looks like something from Lord of the Rings...
