Welcome to another location feature! Apologies for the delay with this one. I've been concentrating on the second draft of the manuscript in my own spare time, as much as I can afford. So I've had to put the update on the back-burner for a while! Also, I hate to say it, but I'm still suffering with this illness that's caused a few problems in many areas. Is it ever going to end?
Anyway, this is a little view of the Snowdon Peak and Pen-Y-Pass captured from a viewpoint on the opposite side of the valley. Its easily accessible from the road, with a small car park/lay-by to leave your vehicle. I managed to do this on the last day of our holiday when we were heading back. (With the illness, it was still a little difficult doing a lot of the things we usually do when in North Wales – such as climbing mountains! Its a hobby which both myself and my partner enjoy doing. Not so much this time, I'm afraid!) The reason for choosing this vantage point is not just because it gives a breath-taking view towards Snowdon (aka Y Wyddfa in Welsh) and her sister peaks. This pull-in also features in the novel itself, in one of the later chapters.
Just as an aside, the Snowdon area is also known as Eryri in Welsh. For those of you who are not conversant with the language, it apparently means 'The Place of Eagles'. How apt! I think its one of the most magnificent places in the world!
Until the next time…
