Heaven On Earth

Taking advantage of the recent excellent weather and half term the Pie Tribe headed out to North Wales for the day. Heading first for the Welsh National Slate Museum at Llanberis.

Situated next to the lake and close to Dinorwig Power Station the Museum is free to enter with plenty to do and on this occasion with the added bonus of a model railway exhibition taking place also free to wander round.
After this it was off up the Llanberis Pass to Pen-y-Pass and turn down to Nantgwynant stopping briefly to enjoy the view from the car Park over Llyn Gwynant, Snowdon and the New Cafe!
From here we made our way down to Beddgelert (The Most Beautiful Place in the world?) which was pleasantly quiet considering the glorious weather. With the impending completion of the railway line Beddgelert will be a lot busier. Ice cream, boot buying and strolling around was the order of the day with the time we had. No pies spotted but the thought of a simmering stew left on the go at home kept us going and we eventually headed back home through Betws-y-Coed.
