To find new things, take the path you took yesterday
Tav’s 30th and Matthew’s 1st
One of the longer tours as we spent a week in Penpont over the new year. We celebrated New Year with a black tie do and fireworks. Two days later we celebrated Matthews 1st birthday.
The main walk was another attempt to conquer Pen-Y-Fan (2907ft). The Weather was again foul, with low cloud and driving rain. Most of the group turned back, but Fossie, Cookie and myself struggled onto the top. The only mountain that had beaten a tour walk had been bagged, Cookie celebrated by stripping off at the top. Fossie and I settled for a slug or two of whisky.
