WALK PART 2 – Day 239 Back to Aberystwyth 

Monday 28 March 2016 (Easter Monday)

Train to Aberystwyth 

Lynwynygog Guest House

After 4 winter months at home it’s time to get back walking. I think I made the right decision for me to go home for the winter. Hopefully I’ve avoided the worst of the weather and can look forward to a summer back on the coast. I enjoyed Christmas, catching up with family and friends, and managed a skiing holiday. I could get used to being retired!

I picked Easter Monday as my re-start date purely because that’s the day I started last year. How was I to know that day would coincide with Storm Kate and horrendous weather? I’m getting a sense of déjà vu! Perhaps it’s just another element of symmetry – I postponed my walk and left Aberystwyth being battered by Storm Clodagh and I made my way back as she was subjected to Storm Kate. At least I was tucked up at home for the intervening 7 storms. 

Second time around I have been noticeably much more chilled about everything; hopefully that’s a good thing. I packed last minute and only have a plan for the first 2 days. It’ll all work out. 

The train journey was sunny and I approached the coast alongside the River Dovey with a great view across to Aberdovey.

 It was a lovely sunny evening and so I wandered down to the sea front to take a look (just in case it’s raining tomorrow). Ah the smell of the sea, the sound of the waves, and the sight of the fading sun on the water. Bliss. I’m glad to be back and looking forward to a sunny summer (fingers crossed).

    Welcome back Lucy, definitely the right decision to take take cover over the winter months. We had some spectacular scenes here but its mainly been good for the last few weeks including Storm Katie making no impression. I look forward to hearing about your progress onwards.
