What a glorious day for walking, my only regret was that I believed the weather forecasters and didn't wear shorts!
A shower at first , but sunshine for the rest of the day, and even the breeze was pleasantly coolling at least for me!
Superb views views throughout, especially when we were looking Nortyh and  Liverpool's Anglican Catherdral was so dominant on the syline.
Lunch was taken slightly early, just as the school bell at Berth Ddu went, but it was still probably a betterspot than on the top of Moel y Gaer.
After lunch it was like a pleasant stroll and in the Sun, topped up with a superb pint of Lees at the Britannia Inn.
