          ... and you had to watch the ground for every single step and stop completely to admire the stunning surrounding scenery. But that was luxury compared to later, after about 15 kms or so we had to climb out of the valley, and then started the most difficult and endless climb - again clambering up uneven stones. That was when we had a scary moment - or half an hour - Amr got the vapours, and he never gets the vapours....when we were maybe a third of the way up, he ...

This was also a birthday for me and once I got my phone working received lots of birthday messages. We went out for a special birthday meal and Eira also produced a birthday ...

I was at High School with Eira and Ken was at college in Swansea with Terry. Ken was also Terry's best man at their wedding. They have a lovely home overlooking Morecambe Bay and the mud flats, ...
