|Early morning calm at Porthmadog|
While waiting for the departure we took a quick look at the Llanberis Lake Railway with its small Hunslet engine.

The Welsh Highland station in Caernarfon is being built new and it was a little walk out of town to get tickets but there was still plenty of time to walk around the pleasant old town although the area close to the station is very grotty. People getting off the train might think that Caernarfon was a parking lot surrounded by abandoned buildings out of which rose a castle.
The ride back to Porthmadog was superb. From rain at Llanberis we left Caernarfon in good sun and were treated to some superb scenery right through to Rhyd Ddu and Beddgelert. The rhododendrons were in full bloom and the sheep were frolicking in the fields.
