Sunday 9th March Taffs Well to Craig- yr- Allt 2014

Beautiful spring morning, met the boys Jamie, Andrew, Tom and Rob. At Taffs Well train station. walked through and over Fforest Fawr. Overwhelmed by cyclist. Did you know cyclist are supposed to give way to walkers and by law they must have a bell and ding the bell to warn others, fluorescent clothing does nothing for a walker who has their back to a cyclist. Up the lane past the Black Cock Inn, no we were not enticed in. On to Craig yr Allt where you could see Caerphilly Borough, Pontypridd and the surrounding hills. Cardiff and the Severn Estuary was enshrouded in mist.
Three buzzards gave us a wonderful display. lesser spotted wood pecker shot past. cabbage white butterflies drifted about to early for flowers. Down on to the Taff Trail we debated the length of the walk, we all agreed to six and half miles but we called in at the Taffs Well Inn this added another two miles. Where the land lord gave Malli a large bowel of well deserved water. Cheeks red from the early spring sun,the sunshine glowed us home.
