Walking Weekend

31st March - 2nd April 2000

What's the most famous thing about Wales? Yes you guessed it, it rains all of the time and boy did some of us experience it.

Abervageny Guide Centre was the base for a weekend of walking and drinking. We were up early on Saturday and off for the first walk, where we saw some stunning waterfalls and river. You could walk behind two of the waterfalls which was a weird experience, but great to look out from. Even thought it was raining during the day it didn't dampen the spirits of the walkers, with Colin and Spanna seen in T-Shirts.

Hands up who likes garlic? Well you would have loved the Garlic bread that was cooked up by FOW, it had loads and loads of Garlic. Fantastic. The evening was then spent in one of Abervagenys "interesting" pubs!! But after that it was back to a under floor heated room which I found very odd. On Sunday some of the younger element went up a longer route to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain and were joined by the others at the top. The views were out standing, that is if you enjoy looking at clouds!! One group then went on a long walk to the pub and got completely soaked, but fun was had by jumping into puddles and getting everyone wet. Nigel then amused us all by driving into a "large" washing line pole that was slap bang in front of him. Silly man.

Our heart felt thanks go out to Diccon for organising this superb weekend of walking.
