Criccieth a dated but quaint seaside town….

A few light showers but mostly another dry and grey day. We set off for Criccieth on the Lleyn Peninsula and parked up above in a lay-by. The long beach is mostly stony and shingle with a few patches of course sand – certainly not the prettiest we have seen, though the ruins of the castle sitting high above add a certain feature.

We walked along the promenade, up and over Castle Hill and along Marine Beach another mostly stony beach on the other side.

The sea is quite rough and grainy with churned up sand – does it get to be a lovely turquoise colour when the sun is shining? Probably not! Any how we had a good walk before heading back along the coastal path to where we had left the car.

A little glimmer of sunshine out over the sea.

Two thoughts of the day:

Anyone else finding the new series ‘Strangers’ a bit irritating?

Somehow today’s grey is not as grey as yesterday’s!
