Day 8: Felindre to Abbeycymhir
18.4 miles. I’m enjoying this Glyndwr’s Way path. Whether we are on roads or off, we seem to be in much more remote areas, with more expansive views and broader horizons. Today’s walk was almost exclusively on trails, giving my feet a break from the pounding of walking miles on pavement.
Our destination, Abbeycymhir, is a small village with few options for food or lodging. We were granted access to camp in a field and offered breakfast for the next morning. But we were on our own for dinner on a place with no restaurants, a pub that doesn’t serve food and a tiny store stocked with more cleaning supplies and pet food than human food. Fortunately we had prepared for such an eventuality, and broke out one of the two freeze-dried meals we brought with us. That, some cup-o-noodles and a can of fruit cocktail comprised our evening meal, eaten in the shadows of the crumbling walls of the original Abbeycymhir abbey.
