Not everyday's a picnic day!
Our last day on this trip in Bannau Brycheiniog. After packing up and clearing out of our lovely holiday cottage, we headed for a picnic walk on the way home. Parking up by The Black Mountain Quarries, it was tipping down so we got on our waterproofs, with everything in the rucksack being put in a waterproof bag and a waterproof cover over the top of the rucksack too! Nobody wanted wet sandwiches.
We headed off into the rain and mist, treading carefully around the mine areas. Walking on up until we reached a cairn marking a high point.
Basil was not impressed.
We didn't stop long. Walking back down it was quite hard to find the way. The ground was boggy with water seeping into the small hole in my boot. I was reminded that my, once snug, waterproof socks no longer work.
