Oh What a Lovely Day!

Standard

IMG_0945IMG_0947IMG_0949Today the weather has been awesome. One of those British hot steamy days when you are glad to paddle (or swim) in the sea. Each time we come to our “place by the sea” we explore a little more of the Welsh coastal path. Today we dabbled and paddled around Borth-y-gest a pretty village. We discovered tea rooms( nothing new there) an easy stretch of coastal path and hidden coves and beaches. Idillic!

Maybe a little more of the coastal path tomorrow. The Llyn Peninsula Coastal Path is 110 miles (180kilometers) long so at this rate it may take us some time. But watch this space.

Awesome Austria Day Six

Standard

Today we walked hobbled around the Zillar Valley in Austria. I would take a pic of my toes but they are far too grusome for publication! My other excuse is that thirty plus degrees is far to hot for hiking anyway!

We travelled up on the single chair lift at Hippach Ramsau. This is the best lift ever! You just glide up the mountain accompanied only by bird song and a gentle breeze. Sadly it is closing after this year due to high maintenance costs. I Signed the save Ramsau lift petition and will do the same on Facebook.

We stopped at the obligatory cafe at the top of the lift for some refreshment OK beer! I waved Hubs off as he walked into the mountains not to be seen again for several hours. I made my way slowly back to the hotel, avoiding all shopping opportunities. Well it was Sunday, and all or most shops were closed, so I saved a fortune. I enjoyed a swim in the pool ( that didnt hurt feet) and sunbathed in the garden. Bliss!
