MY WALK (with fallen trees on our track).
My six miles walk today started with the sun trying to peep through.  We made our way up to the Dams in Elan Valley, Mid Wales.  Winding our way up and up the track it was starting to get a bit more cloudy.
When we were almost to the top the wind was reaching almost gale-force with heavy rain and hail stones, and my feet literally left the ground a couple of times.  My daughter was hanging on to me for dear life, with us both laughing away!
After struggling to remain vertical we finally reached the top but then moved to a more sheltered area for our well-earned lunch break.
On the way back down the track to return home we were suddenly brought to a complete stand-still as eight of the Forestry trees had come down across the track.  Someone had called a Forestry worker with just two minutes to spare before he left for home.  If we had gone back home the other way it would have been a sixty miles detour, so we watched and waited for a couple of hours instead.
What a day!
