As luck would have it, my final days here in Wales took a turn from the usual gray, rainy days, for a weekend of brilliant sunshine. Saturday saw us heading up Fan Y Big and Cribyn. I was hoping to wait around until sunset, but clouds descended late in the afternoon. I still walked away with over 1100 photos for the day, which for me is quite rare. The forecast for Sunday was for cloud, but as I was stirring in the morning hours I could see sunshine coming through the blinds. So instead of going climbing as the original plan had been, we once again took advantage of the weather and headed up to Hay Bluff and wandered a bit down Offa’s Dyke path for a couple hours.
Tonight is my last night in Wales, so I’m glad I got a few final days out in the hills. Same thing happened last year as well, maybe it’s the California sun trying to welcome me home…
