The Great Orme – (Llandudno) – 21/03/07 – 679 ft – Nat. Trust w/hol + Helen

Another working holiday in Wales, this one at Errdig, found me, Martin, Sue and Helen on this mid afternoon minor climb. Despite the disappointment of not being able to get a tram ride to do most of the climb for us, we bravely pushed on anyway. Sue decided to set a cracking pace (something to do with sore boots ?), and not wishing to play Gooseberry with Martin and Helen, I decided to catch her. I did attempt to slow her down with my idea of a photo opportunity, but was given short shrift, and had to fall back to the others. Not long afterwards however Sue disappeared over the horizon completely, and despite a search by us three survivors, she was not to be seen again, until afterwards on the descent, when we had located a pub. Unfortunately eating a dried up dog turd in a bun, costing nearly three quid at a chip shop prior to the start, turned out to put a bit of a dampener on the rest of the evening.
