We took a welcome break today and made for Snowdonia National Park. After a short discussion our destination was decided, Betws y Coed in Conwy. This was on the spur of the moment and to take advantage of a day without ANY RAIN. You have to be quick these days if planning any excursions, the downpours have been constant. Although the weather conditions haven’t been as terrible as those experienced by people in other parts of the world. Nature can render all helpless as babes when the elements confront us in their full power.
Betws y Coed lies in the Snowdonia National Park, in a valley near the point where the River Conwy is joined by the River Llugwy and the River Lledr, and was founded around a monastery in the late sixth century. The OS reference is SH795565.
This post requires no other words, hopefully the images will communicate with you better than I can at this moment. They were taken on our camera phones. I love trees (both living and dead), and running water. This walk was filled with both attired in beauty and mystery.
