From Aberdaron round the headland of Pen-y-cil

 Thursday 08 July

Pen-y-cil walk around the headland, in much better conditions than last year, when we were well and truly soaked.  
1700 + feet of climbing. Just over 10 miles. Some very steep climbs and descents.
Best foot forward?
Avon Daron and Aberdaron



A boat leaves for Bardsey Island
















People: A couple who said we could avoid the up and down to one cove near Aberdaron…
A man who works in Porthmadog who told us half his life story before continuing on his way towards Nefin. A long walk…
A couple who told us they thought one of the horses was a zebra, until they realised it was wearing a coat…



Back home for dinner, then we drove up to Mynydd Mawr for the sunset view.
A satisfying day.








Wales - near Rhiw - Mynydd Rhiw and coastal path.

 Monday 05 July


A much better weather forecast. We set off just after 10. Walked up to radar station, had coffee on a rocky outcrop above it. Then along to Mynydd Rhiw (304m), down to the road and took a path along a lane with a house where the Welshman directed us…don’t take that path, the council haven’t strimmed it, and it’s full of snakes…. we may have ended up there, past the Saints’ Well,in spite of ourselves.  The footpath signs were there to start with, but then we made a steep descent to the track, over rough ground, guarded by brambles. From then on it was straightforward along towards Plas, to join the coastal Path on the cliffs towards Llanfaelryhs, and back.  Horses running free on the paths. 1080 feet of climbing.  9.8 miles. A brilliant day. 


Our objective









From here on some of the photos are not in order….
