Not that much to say about this standard circuit of the main Brecon Beacons. Bit of cloud around, some drizzle, overall a good day for the Brecons.

Aisde from views (or not at times) and good company. The main event of the day was me taking a dive into a clump of heather. I moved to the right of the path and looked up to say good afternoon to a bunch of scouts coming the other way. I misjudged a clump of heather, it grabbed my boot, I staggered, almost held it, then was able to pick my landing spot in the heather and all was fine (I did remember thinking I hope there's no pointy rocks hiding in there as I shoulder checked it).
