Thoughts and musings of an old codger.

From Gower to Barmouth   - Thursday 14-4-2022

Monday saw us heading north accross the Brecon Beacons for our next free stop, The Pwllgow Arms.
It was a lovely drive accross the beacons, where we stopped for a spot of lunch and to admire the view. Parking in Brecon for the afternoon we walked around the town then headed off for our stop for the night, where we we had a few beers and a meal.

The following morning we headed off to The Elan Valley, location of several reservoirs with fine old victorian dams, that supply water for Birmingham. The weather was closing in and visibility wasn't great but I got a few pictures anyway.

From here we went on the mountain road to Devils Bridge, where we stopped for a wander about and afternoon tea. The rain had stopped by now and it was quite sunny and warm.

We had two pubs lined up nearby to stop at, but when we got there one looked like it had never re-opened after lockdown, and the next one looked occupied, but was closed for some building work.

It was a real shame as the view from their carpark was fantastic, and it would have been great to wake up to.

In the end we went back to Devils Bridge and stayed in the car park of the Tafon Hotel.
As it turned out, the next morning it was not only raining, but we were higher than the cloud base so we would not have seen the view anyway!

Tomorrow it is on to Aberystwith and Barmouth.
