Today I ventured out for a 6.25-mile walk around Conwy. I wasn’t sure exactly where I’d go, just that I wanted to walk at least 6 miles. So I started out on a familiar path into Conwy, down to the quay, and along the path around Bodlondeb Woods. From there, instead of turning toward home, … Continue reading Wales Coast Path: Conwy Beach

Do you remember the walk to Capelulo where I mentioned seeing a sign for a druid circle? Well, a couple weeks later I returned with my parents to look for it. The beginning of the walk was tough. We took a bus to Penmaenmawr and promptly walked straight up to the Jubilee Walk: Instead of going around the walk, … Continue reading A Druid Circle Walk
