Our Weekly Journal 23rd July 2017 - Upset Tummies

Our Weekly Journal 23rd July 2017 - Upset Tummies


Oh Dear! This week did not start, or continue well. Bears Mummy and Daddy wanted one last date night before the new baby arrives and we planned for them all to stay over on Saturday night. We retrieved Aunty S's fire engine from the loft to entertain Bear. It must be almost twenty five years old and still works. We have never worried about gender relevant games, toys, careers and so on. Aunty S wanted a fire engine, so we bought her one, much to the bemusement of some family and friends.

#MySundayPhoto Number 30


Last weekend I had left the camera out and Bear found it. He wanted to know how to take photos and he managed even though it is really heavy. He struggled to hold it and press the shutter release but after a little practice he was taking photos of everything.

Garwnant - The Wern Walk

Garwnant-the-wern-walk-text-over-image-of-path-crossing-stream

Garwnant - The Wern Walk


Difficulty - Easy/Moderate
Parking - £2 all day (at time of posting machines do not take new £1 coins, I'm told the cafĂ© does not give change for parking).

We previously visited Garwnant with Bear. He loved the sculpture trails and the playground so we will bring him back another day. Our walk this week was a route called The Wern Walk. It is described by Natural Resources Wales (who manage Garwnant) as moderate, I would say it's on the easy side of moderate. It is two miles long and their expectations are that it will take an hour. We strolled, took lots of photos and completed the walk in under an hour. The route would be fine for children but one path is loose gravel and it may be difficult for buggies.

Bear loves being a knight. We bought a sword at Cardiff Castle and he loves to take it with him, when we remember, to the other castles we visit.

#MySundayPhoto Number 29

This was not the walk we had planned to do this weekend. Bears parents went out on Saturday night for a last night out together before the baby is born in August so we had Bear overnight. Both Mummy and Daddy woke up vomiting. It can only be something they ate last night, definitely not a hangover, and they did share a dessert.

There was no way either of them could look after Bear so they all stayed here and we took him to Cefn Onn park to ride his bike. No sign of a bike you say. No, I am walking behind carrying a bike, a helmet, wellies, two coats......

Llwyn Celyn Whips - An Easy Walk With A View Over Cardiff

Llwyn-Celyn-whips-an-easy-walk-with-a-view-text-over-image-of-path-and-view-over-cardiff

Llwyn Celyn Whips - An Easy Walk With A View Over Cardiff


Difficulty - Easy
Parking - Free
Child and buggy friendly

This is an easy walk through woods following forest roads. No special equipment or navigation skills are required although the paths can be really wet and muddy after rain. It is a gentle up hill climb with glimpses of the Brecon Beacons and at the top views over Cardiff.

There is a picnic table at the top so a good place to pause for a snack. We just walked to the ROC (Royal Observer Corps) Station and back and the route took us 1.5 hours, but we didn't rush and paused many times to take photos and admire the views, also it was Mr Ps first walk not on pavements since his operation so we took it easy. There is a longer, circular walk described on the Ramblers website.
