CBC or Tryfan?

Now that the company that own the Christian Resources Exhibition (CRE) have bought up the Christian Booksellers Convention (CBC) the ideal time of year and format have changed for the worse. At least for 2009, and for those 'in the trade' in my opinion. I don't think I'm alone, but I keep aloof from the uproar. So this year Lorna and I packed the bags and headed to sunny North Wales rather than gloomy Sandown Park. Instead of incurring the costs of travel & accommodation in London, we thought we'd spend the time & money somewhere better. CBC or Tryfan? No competition! Just check out the pictures...

If you don't like mountains, at least admire God's handiwork. If you do but don't know Tryfan, then get your maps out now. The most sublime ridge scrambling in England and Wales is to be had here, right to the 3000+ ft summit. We were humbled with gratitude for the glorious weather window afforded us. Gusty side winds reminded us of how rusty our balance has become through lack of use. But aside from that there wasn't a cloud in the sky! The batteries are now fully recharged, and it's great to see the children again (excellently looked after by Lorna's parents.) Here's to the next CBC!
