Where I really went...

Time of day is correct as per photo, but this river is not navigable! :)

Gwynant Valley

Note to self: It's no good walking 10 miles in a day if you are then lame for 2 days due to a blister and a slightly strained muscle at the back of the knee!

I hadn't been out for a walk for a couple of days due to dismal weather etc, and for some reason I got the urge to do a really long walk. Probably, with hindsight, about 3 miles too long, especially as I had to keep up a fast pace because it was going dark. Anyway, the leg is more or less better today. Perhaps a short cycle ride tomorrow?

In other news, I have a new walking icon, courtesy of my friend N, owner of the two collies. She sent me a couple of the photos that she'd taken on the walk up to the peat bog.
