Saturday wasn't the most exciting day. It started off alright, but turned into a miserably wet day. I had promised to go to a geocaching picnic in the park just around the corner and did so, but should've stayed home. I was the only who was going to attend anyway and after a bit of a search I saw two women who looked like they could be geocachers. Not that they identified themselves clearly, not even a GPS in hand! Anyway, as it was they were the ones I'd been looking for. Without proper introductions we took off to look for the nearest geocache together, found it, scribbled our names in the logbook and walked back to our meeting place. From there we said our goodbyes and I hurried back home where I ate my picnic lunch!
My shoes were soaked and beyond drying in a hurry, so, when it cleared up later in the day Sal and I went to Llandudno where I bought an extra pair of walking shoes, having found my favourite brand: Sketchers.
SundaySunday proved to be a lot better and Chris and Sal invited a Polish girl, Monika, to join us for a bit of sightseeing. Monika has been in the country for a year now, worked mostly and had not seen much of Wales, or rather, had not seen anything at all.
Chris showed her Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch station (as you do) and on the way back we had a brief stop at the Gazelle Hotel at Menai Bridge for a cool drink.
Then it was onward to Aber Falls for a walk and a search for a few caches. By then we had introduced Monika to the game and she liked to actively take part.
