A working weekend

It seems a bit back now but last weekend we had a trip to North Wales with work colleagues to look at various work related sites. We initially had a trip to Llandudno pier to examine Rhyl Flats wind farm
Rhyl flats and North Hoole wind farms
.. with a little imagination you can see the wind farm out there.
We then headed off to Llanberis for a tour of Electric mountain - we had been there around 8 years ago but it was an impressive tour of the huge pumped storage power station - some of the turbines were running and I don't think they were last time. Unfortunately no cameras were allowed inside but here we are afterwards:Charlotte fails to interest the party in some engineering
A walk up on the hills above the entrance to the power station gave wonderful views of Snowdon on what turned into a lovely autumn dayCrib Goch off to spend the night in Caernarfon where, impressively, the Ouzo and Olive managed to feed the 14 of us pretty well when we just turned up (they did have an interesting interpretation of Vegan cookery though).
The next morning after a breakfast at the Holiday Inn I'd rather forget we went back to Llanberis and walked a bit (couldn't do Snowdon we were late and the car park was full) lunch at the Caban Cyf very good locally sourced wholefood cafe.
