Awoke to a covering of fine snow! The weather report for the day is  2 degrees and snow showers so not looking good for off roading.
Guess "we" are made of sterner stuff as we then spent the day up in the hills trying to find as many sheep as we could! The route today was across great swaths of barren land plus the odd bit of excitement when the car was leaning too far to one side for my comfort. A few fords, always Chris's favourite, plus a river trip ( pity we didn't have a boat) plus about 28 gates to open and close made for a fun trip.
first gate we met a flock of sheep on the move

the views are amazing

pretty lanes

we meet the river, Chris goes to investigate, the exit is near the bridge in the distance

splish splash here we go

love this sign

crossing the causeway Lake Vernwy

side of the lake

we never pass up a toilet stop, but this one was really special

start of a bone shaking lane

lots of pretty waterfalls

narrow bridges to navigate

as we complete the route for today we are again held up [not that we mind]
