Yesterday was my birthday, I've reached the age of 62! I woke up to sunshine and a lovely warm day.The day started with cards, presents, phone calls and text messages wishing me a happy birthday. First of all I had a walk in the woods at Pen-y-Coed with Liz and the dogs to exercise them before we left them on the boats for the afternoon. Back on the boat to get ready to be taken out to lunch at 'The Hand at Llanarmon' by Liz and Nick. The food was absolutely delicious, we all left the restaurant feeling very full and my birthday treat wasn't over yet.
With the help of satellite navigation our next stop was Pistyll Rhaeadr, a waterfall in the Berwyn mountains with an amazing drop of nearly eighty metres. Some lovely scenery on our journey-even better in the sunshine and that's the first time I've been on a road that goes through a farm yard. The farmer looked a bit surprised to see us when we drove through on the way back. It was great to go somewhere different, many thanks to Nick and Liz for helping to make my day so special.
