For Boxing Day we had planned to go a bit further afield into Snowdonia, but the combination of a little lie in, preparing for my family visiting later in the day and rain forecast later, we decided to stay local and do a walk that I had never done, Sharon having done bits of it, starting at the little village of Llanferres and walking a 7 mile walk around Bryn Alyn and Moel Findeg. This was a great leisurely walk with great views of the Clwyddian range down to Moel Famau. There was hardly a soul about, the weather stayed dry until we had come down from Nercwys, but the rain started so we made a short detour back and never made Moel Findeg, thank fully we did as an hour later it was pouring down. I gave my camera a rest today, and I must admit it was quite nice without the additional weight, Sharons little Panasonic Lumix taking some great pictures....... Gary.

A dodgy summit photo with the self timer, Holly never sits still!!
lots of limestone outcrops
this place has a real Mole problem!!
Tough sheep in Wales, this flock stood their ground ganging up on Holly
Lovely through the Conifer woods
Lunch stop, note my new Christmas present off Sharon, Rab down jacket, absolutely love it!!
Not long after the rain started and we decided to head back, we were so glad we did, as within no time it was pouring down again!!
