Following a spell of grim weather our little group were feeling the effect of cabin fever and despite a poor forecast for Monday a walk was on. The destination being the Gwaun Valley.
Mrs Navigator took the sensible option and stayed home whilst The Navigator, Paul, Chris, Daisy the Dog and I hoped for the best.
It did not start well for me as my usual organisational skills were found wanting when I found that my boots had been forgotten. I had to make do with the old, tread-less trainers I was wearing, I was going to get wet feet that was guaranteed.
The walk started on a good woodland track and IF there had been some sunshine it would have shown off its autumn colours. We stopped for a coffee above the Afon Gwaun before heading away from the river heading east and then south to Tregynon and more woodlands.
Near Llanerch we joined a minor road passing Pwll y Broga and then near Banc y Rhyd cutting down to again follow a woodland path to Llanerch and the minor road back to the car.
We passed the famous Gwaun Valley pub, the Dyffryn Arms but known far and wide as Bessies where beer is still served from a jug.
Despite the drizzle, overcast day and my very wet feet it was good to be out.
