This trip to Snowdonia had been planned for some time. Primarily as I didn't want to be at home over the period of time that I had lost my darling wife Bobbie in 2007. I was booked into the wonderfully welcoming Beddgelert Bistro for an indeterminate time: an ideal location so close to the mountains. That allowed a Christmas Eve circular walk starting right in the village, a walk I repeated from before dawn on Christmas morning. Being pre dawn I started with a headtorch and found I needed to use my hands a lot more than doing the same walk the previous day!
