RAMBLING HOLIDAYS


CRICCIETH WEEKEND 
4th- 6th April 2014

We had a lovely time in Criccieth, although the weather wasn't very kind to us and caused difficulty on some of our walks.

However the food and entertainment at the George Hotel was good and our meal on our way home was excellent.

I'll put the photos on the website as soon as I can, although there won't be so many due to the poor weather conditions.
