Over lunch, Brian tried his David Bailey skills – the results are attached. Beer & Lunch was served quickly, unlike last week. The Smithy House opposite dates from 1572 and the lintel was a log that had solidified like marble.
After an hour in front of the log fire, we reluctantly continued south to Llanarmon, before joining the Corwen road at Rhydtalog for the very fast descent down to Penyffordd. We turned back north through Bilberry Wood, across the footbridge over the A55 for the final run back to Hawarden, where Dave H left us. Gallery afternoon tea completed, Ray and I continued with the wind behind us down to the Queensferry Bridge, where we went our separate ways. Well, we may not have covered many miles but with the wind against us on the way out we deserved some treats! A round trip from Hawarden of 34 miles on a dry and sunny winter’s day.
