One of the great things about being on holiday is that there is more freedom; the freedom to say 'Why not?!', so, why not nip just down the road from Tremadog to Porthmadog to buy Chinese take-away, and take it 4 miles down the coast to the lay-by where we could sit and eat looking over Criccieth castle. Dark? So what?
Since 2006, one or both of the lads have been going to Criccieth for the annual Pathfinder and/or CYFA camp. They have loved it and this place will always hold a special significance for them.
So, Chinese eaten and back to the tent. Yes?
Not quite because, while we are out, why not drive over Pen y Pass to have a look at the mountains in the dark? And so, we ended up back in the lay-by with the view of Snowdon (causing some consternation to the family illegally settled down for the night in their camper van - 'No overnight parking!' Worried faces peeped out through the curtains to make sure our car wasn't sporting a blue light and the word HEDDLU).
No clouds enshrouding Snowdon this time!
And we eventually crept off to leave the campers in peace.
A couple more days off posting (What again?) because I am going up to Cumbria to collect Mark.
