Easter Holiday - Day 1


After heavy snow, we decided to hang on and not rush out. The snow started to melt, and by the time we left, it had begun to melt.

So, we packed up the car and left just after 10.30. Once we got on the road, the weather improved dramatically - in fact, it was a really sunny day for the first part of the journey along the A14 and the old M6.

We made good progress and because we had time to kill (we couldn't check in until 4pm), we stopped off at Chirk Castle for lunch.

After lunch, we resumed our journey and headed for our destination - The Lion Inn - in Gwytherin - after stopping off at Betws-y-coed to kill a bit more time.

We arrived around 4.30 to a really nice room. No double bed, no TV signal and no mobile reception - will I survive? :)

We spent the next couple of hours catching up with Podcasts, listening to music and reading the newspapers.

We're off to our first evening meal in the pub tonight at 7.30. I wonder what it'll be like?
