Mountain railway

          Join me on a steam train trip to the top of Snowdon…

      Did you drop into the gift shop to see if there are any trinkets which Catch your eye.  I’m pretty sure there’s a gift shop at the top too, but I believe it’s smaller and probably more expensive…  After all, it is at the top of a mountain.

      Here’s the platform…  Llanberis station.

          Somebody’s got a lot of luggage… Have you seen the porter?

          I’ve chosen us a window seat so we can enjoy the view.

          Browsing through some photos I have stored on the external memory box ready for sorting, it appears I not only went to Llanberis in June, I climbed down Snowdon too.  There are no photos of me to prove I was actually there, but I vaguely remembered the first few photos in the file, and by the end I could remember the weekend too.

          I remembered wandering off without Hubby to take these two photos, I’m not sure where he was, but he hadn’t gone back to the tent because I have a photo of the view from our B&B window, so we weren’t camping.

          It’s coming back to me now, we went up on the train and came back down the miner’s path.  Oh yes, and “Georgio’s” … that’s me holding the ice-cream.

          I’ll fix up a few more photos over the weekend and dig around in the old grey cells to tell you what we were up too.

Georgio’s

          For the last couple of days we’ve been visiting “Llanberis“, we’ve had perfect weather,  we’ve taken a trip to the top of Snowdon on the mountain railway and walked back down to Pen-y-pass via the miners’ track, we’ve watched someone stand on a tightrope way up over an old abandoned mine and I’ve chased the sunset around the lake with my camera.

          We’ve breakfasted at “Pete’s Eats“…

          But I’m sorry Pete, you’ve been toppled from the top of my “number one places to visit in Llanberis” list by a new favourite.

          After our walk down the mountain I treated myself to an Ice-cream at Georgio’s.   You might have heard me rave on about the “ice-cream” in Brixham, we haven’t been to Brixham in a long while, but even allowing for absence to make the heart grow fonder, I think the highlight of my visit this time was eating possibly the best ice-cream I’ve ever had.

          The homemade ice-cream on sale at “Georgio’s” is all made on the premises, and what was the flavour which had such an impact on my taste buds?

          Blackcurrant and liquorice…  You’ve eaten the sweets…  But don’t take my word for it…  Visit for yourself and taste the ice-cream.
