PostSubject: Stride and Stroll walks - Sunday 18 October   Mon Oct 19, 2015 11:19 am

Leaving Edmund and Rachel to lead the later, shorter Stroll walk, a mixed bag of walkers from C&D and other North Wales groups enjoyed improving weather on Sunday’s circular Stride walk from Llanfairfechan. Not that much striding took place on the steep ascent through the back paths of the village and then the open hillside! Good views of the Laven Sands from up there, compensating for the cloud covered mountains above us.

Reaching the old Roman road coming from the Conwy valley, we followed it towards Abergwyngregyn before turning up to Aber Falls – still very impressive despite the recent dry weather. Then a loop around the valley, following the high level Wales Coast Path, before a descent to the village and the lane down to the coast. The idea that we might catch up with the afternoon group while walking back along the Straits had by then receded – something about extra miles, apparently - strange. Though with Nigel’s deadline of a roast dinner at 5pm at his daughters, and speed walker Joan in the lead, we were back at the Pavilion Café at 4pm, just a few minutes after the others left.

Mugs of tea shared space with assorted GPS’s – had we walked 12.5 miles, or 12.7, or other variations? Fortunately, nobody complained about it being more than the advertised 10 miles! The consensus seemed to be that we had had a good walk, even if we had missed seeing the other group.

Our next Stride and Stroll day is on Saturday 12 December, with two variations on Rhyd Ddu to Beddgelert via the forest tracks. Definitely a shorter stride walk that day, and with the Tanronnen Hotel to draw us, this time a two groups meet is virtually certain.
