Travelling restrictions in Wales have been lifted. Walking gear on , get in to car and drive up to the Brecon Beacons and get caught in road hold up because the are resurfacing the road, Aargh.
So a bit later drove past Pen-y-Fan and dropped down to Libanus to go to the Mountain Centre in the Hope that the car park would be open. Good news! Car park open and it is currently free.
Better still, the toilets were open as well and staff were available to supervise entry. I believe that take away food will be available from Friday. Gear on and off to walk to Twyn-y Gaer, a nice easy walk with outstanding views pf the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains and a blast of fresh air. Watched a red kite riding the wind and had a drink and a snack and kept a very wary eye on the grey boiling storm clouds that were creeping over the hills to the North.
Back to the car, Drove over to Hirwaun and up over the Rhigos, with a stop at the top to admire the views and avoid the temptations of the Ice cream van. Drop down through the forests and the wind farms, with tremendous views right, left and centre.
Back through old fashioned villages in the Rhondda valley that still have shops and lots of people out and about, to arrive back at home just before the rain, Weather forecast spot on . All good fun. Roll on the weekend.
