Rainy start to the day with showers on and off all day, but a little bit of sunshine during the afternoon. Today we drove a couple of miles south from Harlech to the little coastal village of Llandanwg, parking up by the entrance to the beach. Smallish car park and only £1.10 for up to four hours which I thought was ok. The beach to the left had a seasonal dog ban.
Not a problem as the beach to the right (or north) looked nicer and was enjoying better weather!
This part stone and coarse sandy beach was deserted and with enough stones to keep Poppydog amused we walked the mile or so to the far end, where as the tide receded you could access Harlech Sands.
The dramatic clouds accumulating at the southern end of the beach didn’t look too inspiring.
But we enjoyed a good while pottering around on the beach.
Before you could see the rain coming across Harlech beach, with all views of the mountains gone and sure enough we were soon caught in a fortunately short sharp shower.
A little damp we headed back along the beach and took a quick peep at the little church sheltering in amongst the dunes, before returning to site.
Two thoughts of the day:
I wonder if sitting out in the early evening sun drinking a glass of wine is a thing of the past? I hope not.
Still proudly wearing shorts – how much longer?
