A beautiful sunny day, yesterday both our Scouting children were busy for 6 hours, but we were lacking a little in energy. We trundled over to Bala, had a leisurely stroll through the town and along part of the lake shore and then drove up to Llyn Celyn for a picnic. Quieter than Bala and with a picnic site allowing us to sit a little way from the road, Llyn Celyn is a reservoir between Bala and Trawsfynydd. The dam controls the flow of water down a mountain stream, providing white water for kayak enthusiasts and finally entering the River Dee just a little way below Bala Lake - where the Dee rises.
A peaceful picnic, a little progress on a knitted lace bangle - eventually to be embroidered and it was time to come home. Llyn Celyn:
