A slow news day. We didn't get much sleep last night a steady drizzle caught by the trees overhead became akin to bombardment when the wind dislodged several gallons onto the truck roof. This, courtesy of our acquaintance Murphy, occurred totally randomly.
Crawled out of bed to the same so decided to do some laundry, this completed there was still no change in the weather. Beddgelert is a mile down the road so off we set for a paper. Returned bearing a paper, a pound of bacon and a fifty five litre rucksack. Just the job for winter and just over half that in sterling. I didn't escape that easily, the same shop had some maps, T shirts, trousers, all reduced. The latter two bearing the brand name Gelert, never associated the two before, though the factory is just down the road. So, broke again, I headed home dressed like a dog. A brave and fatally maligned dog.
Observant being that I am, noticed that the gates round here are, if not unique certainly unusual also being aware that it now takes 2.36 minutes to read my posts I'll get to the pictures.
The last is just a little water, the rest are rusty fences and gates. Tomorrow looks good so with luck will get to Owain's cave.
PS. Read the paper, Baroness Scotland fined £5000.00. Why not fifty thousand? We'll no doubt be paying! Crossword, a failure.....so far! However two shirts and a pair of trousers for under thirty pounds can't be bad.
All the best.
