Alphabe Thursday …. M is for Mount Snowdon

February 12, 2015


We have no mountains to climb in England and the highest point in the UK is Mount Snowdon in Wales due to its relative insignificance in the world  its ‘mount’ bit is often forgotten ; but for this  weeks contribution to Alphabe Thursday it has been rightfully attached.

When my youngest daughter was young we walked and cycled a lot; our weekends and holidays were spent exploring the English and Welsh countryside. We might rent a cottage, use youth hostels and we have camped a little.  Our favourite haunt was Bala lake in north Wales we stayed in various abodes and walked around the lake a few times and on one occasion we sailed across. It was not a happy event as we capsized the boat but it didn’t spoil the holiday. The main event was to walk up Mount Snowdon more quickly than the time before.  While we won’t find ourselves in the Guinness Book of Records there are many happy images images in the family album.

    🙂 I’m in love with this post, Nel. We loved Mt. Snowdon too, in fact all of northern Wales that we could get too (even a tin mine, went down into it) in a week. We didn’t hike, we took the cog train up.

    The memories you have shared sound like a wonderful time. I enjoy walking so with the warmer weather it is always a pleasure to get out and move! I feel like a bear hibernating some days! We have not had a lot of snow so I feel like it is a blessing! Have a good weekend and come visit soon.

      Dear Anne! I love you blog but can never find a way to comment! My favourite ‘love is’ is ‘understanding her moods … my long suffering husband took a long time and often still doesn’t fathom emotional ups and downs! … So I enjoyed you ‘L’ very much! So thanks for dropping by and you kind comments xxxx
