Every Day In May #22: A Map of Betws-y-Coed

Assignment #22 was to draw a map, so I decided to finally come to terms with Betws-y-Coed, Wales, a place that sends my internal compass completely out of whack.  Whenever I've walked there, if I feel  like I am going East, I am sure to be going West.  I think it's because I can't get used to mountains being south of me.  I grew up with them in the North.   I was happy with my map (colored pencil on tea-stained paper) up until I decided to show the forested areas by coloring them green.  Why oh why couldn't I have stopped right before then and taken a picture at least.  Is there a cure for always taking a drawing one step too far?
