WEDNESDAY Sept 24th
Today we drove to Snowdonia. The weather was dry, but there was sign of the sun when we left. Another very scenic route along mountain roads.
We arrived at Mount Snowdon car park, along with it seemed, thousands of other people and cars, plus coaches and coaches full of tourists.
We had hoped to go on the Snowdon Mountain Railway but were not able to, due to every train that day being booked. http://www.snowdonrailway.co.uk/

A tad disappointed, we were advised by the car park attendant to go to another car park nearby and visit The Slate Museum. It was most interesting and educational. Plus it was FREE entry! A man demonstrated how slate is cut and we watched a fascinating film on bygone days of the slate industry.

What hard working people this industry produced and still does. https://www.museumwales.ac.uk/slate/ An afternoon drive to Beddgelart followed.

We arrived here around 2.30pm and the sun made an appearance! We had a good walk down some lovely country lanes and past streams teeming with fish.
Start of Our Walk
The sheep and cattle roamed freely on the vast pasture land that appeared to go on for miles and miles. Once again we were blessed with fantastic scenery and lots of photos were taken. A leisurely drive back to the cottage was made for another lovely day.
