The Wilson wanderers stride out on the borders


Today was to be a shared adventure, courtesy of Fiona Wilson, previously famed as a Pony Club whizz and now the Queen of local walks.  Twenty Six years married to the reknowned puppeteer Mak Wilson; master of the hound Jet, (a manly Black Labrador – Rufus you may be a dude but Jet wins the prize for good behaviour), and quaffer of fine champagne.

A crisp day with a frost on the ground met us at Rhydycroesau, (see links to walks), an appropriate location for Mak’s wife as it is famed for its local pantomimes, Sue certainly put on an act when her brand new Brashers gave her a farthing sized blister!  Sue call yourself a walker…what a fuss?   

Where is the Compead, spare boots at the ready…
The walk was more of a muddy meander than a challenge but took us past wonderful scenery, including local farms and their farmers, each looking at us whilst shaking their heads wondering why these mad women were walking aimlessly rather than working hard in the fields or chopping wood as they all were. 

Sue and Jet our little sun beams.....

Another great day in the Welsh hills, not quite long enough or hard enough for a pint but good enough for a Welsh Tea Cake, well done all.
