I spent my Halloween this year with ArcticDragon (one of my two brothers) in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales.
Though we didn't come here especially for Halloween... (since neither of us do Halloween - but out of our 29 Oct - 1 Nov stay in S.Wales, it happened to be the best weather day for views)... I can say its been the most interesting 31st October I’ve had!
To elaborate more, in addition to climbing hills and mountainous terrain all day with amazing views all around, we saw a couple interesting things on the way.
Seeing clouds form up below you
. It was the speed it happened that was shocking.
(Picture's taken near S.Wales's highest peak, Pen y fan ) Clouds just starting
Taken just 30 seconds later.
And again, after a further minute passed.
These clouds gave us another rare sight, and we saw a circular like rainbow
appear just below us. (Called a "glory", or known as a "brocken spectre". -Had to look that one up :P) Long shadows was pretty weird as well.
Later on in the day, we then went off route...and kind of got lost in the dark. Making our way back was tough. We only had starlight, and a mobile phone screen guiding us back, lol. Trying to find the path to lead us down, from the mountain ridge was the hard part. Never seen a sky as starry as that before though!
Arriving back to a Premier Inn Hotel, in Swansea City we ended the day with an All you can eat from Jimmy's. (£16 but got our money's worth!) Little brother (Coolfansonic) phoned up. I then watched Blade on my laptop. (heh, I guess I did celebrate Halloween with a vampire film, lol. Didn't realise that at the time :P)
Since I had to book time off work this week for this....my ordinary Saturday's are usually very boring.
Plus getting up at to start work at 10a.m kills me anyway since a.m's are designed for sleeping >_>
