I picked Sheila up from work on Friday lunchtime and i felt a bit unwell. Just shaky, warm and a bit nauseous. I thought it would pass having taken some tablets for upset stomach but it didn’t pass. To make matters worse it rained and was misty on the journey.
Arriving at Caethro i just about hung on to go to the Loo without embarrassment. But i felt no better.
Everyone arrived and we all settled in with a meal, few beers and glasses of wine and then it was decided that tomorrow we would drive over to Ogwen Cottage and do the Glyders starting with the ascent of Y Garn.
It’s a route i have done before but it is a worthy and picturesque route. The weather forecast was checked and it all seemed very promising.
Time quickly disappeared and bed time called.
In the morning i was still feeling no better but decided that i could do the walk. I had an upset stomach not a broken leg was my way of appeasing Sheila, she was a bit concerned.
Ogwen Cottage was a bit of a shock. This was our first visit since the new facilities had been built and what a grand job they have made. I remember the old green shed.
A beautiful day, and as you would gather there were lots of people and cars everywhere.
Y GarnUnfortunately there isn’t much to tell from my point of view. We set off up the steep face of Y Garn and as soon as i put in any effort the shaking became worse and i was burning up. Sheila kept telling me to stop and go back but i soldiered on until we made the first ridge of the Pinnacles and then when i sat down i knew that was it. Complete loss of energy.
Once i had had a chat with the others it was decided that i would go back. What a pain in the bum it was such a fantastic walking day.
Sheila and i got down and sat by the Llyn for about 1/2 hr and then drove back to Caethro where i spent the afternoon laid up in bed.
I have no idea what caused it and still don’t. To make matters even worse, the village pub has closed down The Bryn Gwna Inn.
So here are the pictures i took of the brief walk and a couple of Llyn Padarn later.
