Peaks by Royal Appointment

Many thanks to the royal couple for giving us a day off. As with Williams parents this gave us the opportunity to get out and climb some mountains.

So with a packed rucksack, pie included, the Pieman dissappeared into sunny North Wales to walk up Cader Idris and more specifically Mynydd Pencoed (2,595 ft), Penygader (2,930 ft) and Mynydd Moel (2,831 ft).

Showers in the afternoon were predicted but never materialised. Whilst breezy on the peaks it was very warm with excellent visibilty.
Taking longer than anticipated, mainly due to a lack of physical fitness, I overtook no-one the whole day and was overtaken by everything including a blind three legged dog. I was that tired at the end of the day I forgot to eat my Pie!!!!! Even so it was a beautiful day all round.
