Anniversary Hike & Symonds Yat
Thursday 31st August 2017
For our wedding anniversary this year we walked the Brecon Horseshoe. The weather wasn’t good so, although it didn’t rain, there was no view as we were up in the clouds the whole time. We walked the route anti-clockwise, but skipped out Fan-y-Big as we’d been up it in the spring. I’d love to go back when the weather is better and do the walk again in good conditions. It’s supposed to be really picturesque.
We stayed at YHA Danywentallt after we got down from the ridge, and the next morning explored a bit more of the Brecons before heading home. We stopped in at Symonds Yat on the way home for a pub lunch at the Saracens Head and a walk along the river. I loved seeing the canoes and watching the traditional rope crossing in action on the river.
