This turned out to be a much warmer day than the we were expecting, and much more sunshine too, so we ended up frequently stopping to look at flowers, butterflies and even the view! As ever this was a delightful and varied walk.
Lunch was taken as usual on the limestone outcrop on Mynydd Pant, giving us fine views towards Moel Siabod and Snowdonia and also across the bay to the Great Orme.
