The summer has slipped south too. With the summer weather came a lack of motivation to be stuck in a studio so Radio Free Walesifornia shut down for the summer.

What we did do
Llandudno: Today we hopped a double decker for a tour around the Victorians sponsored by Llandudno Arts Festival, hosted by a drag opera queen. Lots of fun.005

London:  We traveled south to the capital, and made well overdue visits to friends and family. We also saw rodents

We hiked in my beloved Snowdonia. The biggest was 7 miles from the coast at Penmaenmawr, up over moorland tracks to Rowen in the Conwy valley.  We passed feral ponies

and feral royal mail delivery vans.

Funny enough the first vehicle we saw after trekking 6 miles over the moors and down into Rowen was the same Royal Mail van and driver, wearing a sheepish smile.

Other lovely hikes included the Snowdonia peaks of Moel Siabod and Tryfan
