As mentioned yesterday some of the allotments gang are now heading for the land of our fathers. Of course Snowdonia has a reputation for a drop of the wet stuff, but we have put our faith in the weathermen. Probably return looking like drowned rats!
Our main interest is in the magnificent recently reopened railway between Caernarvon and Portmadog, a journey by steam of 24 miles. After many years of toil, plus a good deal of funding from various sources, the old Welsh Highland Railway track which closed in 1937 is back in action. Even if you are not, like us, steam nuts, you would enjoy the beautiful scenery and reminder that life was once conducted at a more leisurely pace.
Hopefully we shall be back with you on Sunday. By then the odds are that our dear leader will have provided many a new talking point. Rupert Bear had nothing on ‘Dave’. Certain it is that yesterday’s revelations at the Leveson Inquiry have made Hunt’s position untenable, whilst Cameron clearly knew that the culture secretary was anything but impartial. Pimms and resignations all round!
Meantime copy our example, make hay while the sun shines!
