I’ve been looking at the computer screen for some time, trying to put into words something of the experience of the last few days. It’s not easy to describe the highs and lows and the sense of satisfaction.
On Friday and Saturday last week we walked from Brecon to Cardiff along the Taff Trail, a distance of about fifty miles, to raise money for Compassion. To date over £800 has been promised and we hope that figure will rise further in the next day or two. Anyone wishing to donate can do so via the Taff Trial blog.
Our walk was led by John, a seasoned walker and Mike, Mark and I completed the full distance. Alun joined us for the first day from Brecon to Merthyr and we were joined at Pontypridd on day two by Roger, Marina and Jan. In addition, there were a number who met us to do the last mile from Sofia Gardens to Cardiff Bay.
In looking at the pictures, two things occurred to me; first in the first picture, taken in Brecon before we set out, everyone is smiling except John who knew exactly what was ahead of us. Secondly, there are many more photos of the top half of the trail than the bottom half. This isn’t due to any lack of beauty, rather, batteries running low in the camera phone and in my own body.
