Llandudno December 2021

Get me out of here via Gwrych Castle to Llandudno: Destination Llandudno

Thanks for everyone's best wishes both back safe. Weather would never prevent a Louise Johnson plan coming to fruition. Tougher than an ex para she is.

I'll even donate again if Mandy, Dawn Kai Shirley Fox or Diane Taktak would do her burpees tonight but knowing my mate Lou as I do she'll probably do them as soon as she gets in.

Went fine up until Deeside then the full force of the vicious 3deg headwind had us down to 7mph on the flat in parts. Slight concern about the time we'd get home at this point but refer to first paragraph.

Cafe stop about 47 miles in and a full Welsh brekky and shelter gave us a well earned break. Visited the I'm a celeb castle in Abergele but the security guards were on us like a shot.

Headwind continued all the way into Llandudno and curtailed the full climb of the Orme again Al Hankin although we did do the steep part.

Quick cake and coffee and the anticipation of the taily quickly materialised although could never make up for time lost. Through some sun/heavy showers/hail/snow/floods made the whole day like an Indiana Jones movie 142 miles. We never say it's easy but we always say it's worthwhile.
