27 not out

I made my 27th consecutive Christmas Eve ascent of Moel Famau earlier today, accompanied by four dogs, Irish Mick, and almost an entire soccer team provided by Carolyn (some of whom I had never met before). This wasn't so much a walk as an expedition.

As usual, it was very windy on top. So windy, in fact, that one of our team got blown away:

One particularly large gust even caught Carolyn off guard:

As I've said before, you will stop me if this becomes boring, won't you?

  1. What we want to see is Richard in the midst of a back-flip on top of a mountain - that's the way to avoid boring your audience!

    Happy New Year to all in Grutsland.

  2. PS - link to 26 goes to 2013 roundup rather than Christmas eve ascent.

    PPS apologies for the typo in the name last time.
