The next walks programme and news letter for July to December 2010 will be posted to you from June 7th onwards. In the meantime you might be interested in Rachel's (Plaxton) account of our first walk of 2010, pasted below:

Walk to Fort Belan and back – Saturday January 2nd 2010,


Thirty seven stalwart Caernarfon and Dwyfor Ramblers enjoyed a crisp New Year Walk from
Caernarfon Airport to Fort Belan and back on January 2nd. The wind was keen, but sun sparkled on the snow and, warmly wrapped, spirits were as high as the record Spring tide. Jean had braved icy roads the night before to host us all, but, cut off by the tide, could not drive to join our start, walking to meet us halfway instead. Leader, Mike Evans, had obtained permission
from Lord Newborough for our group to walk beyond the caravan site and had arranged for the Public Footpath to be cleared of thorny overgrowth, but the tide above the river footbridge was so high, walkers still had great difficulty getting to the cleared path – and we only saw shell duck and oyster catchers out
on the water. Disturbed by our approach, the oyster catchers rose and wheeled
as one, sunlight flashing vividly off their winged whiteness – breathtakingly
beautiful against the mountain backdrop. Already the moment of high tide was passed, leaving seaweed stranded on grass, a widening band of glistening pebbles below and Jean walking towards us all smiles, with the first view of the Fort, low on the horizon. Typically hospitable she had wanted to serve hot
drinks at the Fort, but Edmund persuaded her that we had come with picnics and would be fine in the shelter of the dock. Also daylight time was of the essence if we were to see the air ambulance as well back at the airport. Few of us had
been to the Fort before, so Jean’s tour was eagerly appreciated. Crowding into the Music Room, a number will be back for further events and new members were enthused, knobbling Jean on the walk back along the coast for more stories. Jean was as interested as the rest of us viewing the brand new red helicopter in its spacious hanger. A wonderful rescue service, covering the whole of Wales between Cardiff and Wrexham Centres and costing three million pounds a year from voluntary contributions. Hot tea in the new state of the art cafe rounded off our memorable start to 2010.
