Our last destination was Betws-y-Coed, the place we came the first day but could not walk because of the rain. We returned here hoping for a better weather so that we can finally take a walk. It was still a wet day, but it was not really raining as the first day, so we parked the car and started to walk losing no time.

The route we walked was along the Afon Llugwy river, easy walk for every one.

The route is through this kind of nice forest, but the noise from a nearby road was a real turn-off.

Old tree covered with moss.
Mushrooms, Betws-y-Coed
Fungi and moss.

It would be nice if I knew how to tell edible fungi from poisonous ones.

Cascade, Betws-y-Coed

At the end of route we found this small cascade. Beautiful scenery.

We turned back from here. After about a hour and 20 min. of walk we were happier. We decided to have a quick coffee before leaving.

Royal Oak Hotel, Betws-y-Coed
As we did not fine nice cafeteria, we returned to the Royal Oak Hotel where we had lunch on the first day.

Tea and coffee are served in the lounge. As I still had fish pie of the lunch in stomack, I had only coffee, but my friend's husband ordered tea, scone and crotted cream and enjoyed a small afternoon tea.

RHUG Organic Farm, Corwen
After relaxing tea time, we left Betws-y-Coed.

On our way home we stopped at theRhug Organic Farm.

According to the webpage, the farm is part of the estate owned by Lord Newborough, and recognised by the Soil Association as organic farm. The farm has this large farm shop selling from various organic products, including ones from this farm, to rather ordinary mass produced food. Then I realised The Corn Mill restaurant in Llangollen uses meat from this farm.

Butcher, RHUG Organic Farm, Corwen
This is the butcher of the farmshop featuring the Aberdeen Angus from the farm. There is also a café serving hamburgers and sausages.

We did some shopping and drove straight to Birmingham. I saw many new things and returned satisfied; I thank dearly my travel companions.
