We had no food for breakfast so got off to an early start. Luckily there was a shop open in the village so we bought cake and bananas to keep us going, and we needed it to sustain us on the climb up and over the Berwyns and into Bala. We had an early lunch at the Siop y Gornel cafe then soon started climbing again, and taking a very steep road from Penmachno to avoid the A5. Exhausted, we stopped for refreshments in Betws y Coed, from where the A5 is the only realistic option, though it wasn’t too busy by now.
After 66 weary miles we reached home, end of another great holiday.
