Camping!

Camping turned out better than expected! The journey was a bit of a marathon — I left Leicester on Friday at 9:09, arrived at Blaenau Ffestiniog at around half-past two, and found that the rain and mist was really rather bad... fortunately, I was very kindly spared from having to camp half-way up on my own in the mist on that afternoon (thanks so very much!), and so I went up on Saturday morning. Not really knowing the way, I headed straight through the marshy bits and got my feet utterly soaked, but I reached the campsite in the end, with a little help and encouragement!

After that, things only really got better — the weather cleared up — on Monday morning, I even managed a quick dip in the lake — and to top it all, I'm not even aware of anyone getting food poisoning! :)

I took lots of rubbish photos with my new camera (a Fujifilm FinePix J50, which has a 2.7 inch screen!), and I'll try to upload the least rubbish of these soonish!
