We have had wonderful weather, magnificent scenery and an abundance of wildlife. We have seen rabbits, plenty of different birds, a rat, a squirrel and even an otter. Apparently it is very rare to see an otter in the wild but on a canal boat trip today we managed to see one swim by. We are staying in another National Park in the Brecon Beacons. ...

... The man from Cheltenham was in a hurry and, before running up a set of stairs 30 or so feet high, explained that he had done 2 sections of the walk yesterday some 25 - 30 miles. We followed him slowly and in some discomfort up the same set of stairs. We wondered if perhaps he was a well known athlete or just superhuman! A few miles later at a place called Dolley Green we did catch a glimpse of him disappearing northwards at high speed, presumably he ...

... We had a short break, a cup of tea and a pastry with chocolate pieces. The next job was to climb Dysgwilfa Hill (the little mountain) a 200 metre climb which was readily accomplished followed by a 3 mile walk through gently rolling fields to a town called Gladestry.

... and anyway it would take us In a southerly direction, something you don't do on a long distance walk heading north. We set of early at 0815 and took a diagonal path on to the ridge to a point about one mile on from where we had left it last night. This took us about an hour and a half. The weather up on the ridge was very suitable for walking with bright sunshine and a brisk South Westerly breeze to keep us cool. The walking surface was also good often pave with large slabs ...

... levelled off and we were able to amble along the ridge enjoying the views and looking for somewhere for lunch, earlier today at 3 o'clock. Then as yesterday the troubles started after lunch. Fortunately we could see our destination, the aptly named Longtown, but could not find the path down. This was in spite of Nick walking the whole of the ridge looking for a stone reputedly marking the top of the path. So we had no choice but ...
