Before she was 60 by sammylou
I took my mother up Snowdon last spring just before her 60th birthday, i insisted it was something she must do before then.
As she is not as fit as she’d like to be, we thought it best not to tempt fate and climb, even though it’s not the hardest walk as the path it pretty accessible to all. We took the train up which enabled us to get fantastic views of the area and chat with other passengers.
Later that day we went for a walk up to Devils Kitchen, which is nearby. That was a gentle walk but it took it out of my mum. We stopped for a while at the lake and Mum told me about her holiday arranged by work, here in the early 60’s. She was delighted to at last see it again after so many years.
We stayed in a B&B near Betws-y-coed, which is lovely village with good selection of places to eat.over 7 years ago
