As mentioned previously, we lived for 18 years in West Wales before moving to Spain,
and the weather was the only 'casting vote'. We loved our time there and all the
wonderful scenery, but the rain encroached more and more. The year before we
left, between September and Christmas we had 92 consecutive days of rain, and with
the continual grey skies and cool temperature, we decided enough was enough. If
Wales had the Spanish sunshine, we'd be back there in a flash! Glad you appreciate
the wonders of Wales, Dave! :D

Hi Gill. This was our second week in Snowdonia in the last year and on both occasions we had only one day without rain, so I certainly understand your reasons for leaving for sunnier climes. But, although we wouldn't want to live there, we love the area for its beauty and tranquility and the rain barely detracts from that during our short visits. Actually, and some might find this hard to believe, we get very little rain here in Kent and walking in the rain in waterproof gear is both novel and fun!

If the rain doesn't bother you, all credit to you. I'm sure in future years you'll
find many more hidden gems in Wales, and I shall enjoy sharing them with you
and Fred :D
