Afon Wen to Glan-y-mor and lots of beach in between…

Quite a wild night and still very windy through the rest of the day, though at least it remained mostly dry until about 6pm. On beyond Criccieth we ventured today, firstly parking up on a little lane just above Afon Wen beach.

The beach was mostly stony with patches of course sand and more being revealed as the tide went out. We walked to Hafan-y-Mor holiday park in one direction and then back to the river Wen in the other.

It all felt rather desolate and unloved, but suited us for a shortish walk, before returning to the car and moving on to Abererch Sands.

Now that’s more like it! A lovely long stretch of mostly sandy beach, plenty of Poppydog sized stones and no one about – ideal!!

It was a lovely, windy walk, the sea rough and churning pale green foam, the sun never quite making an appearance, or not here least aways.

After a while, Abererch Sands leads into Glan-y-Mor beach at Pwllheli, a pretty sheltered crescent of sand.

Beyond this bay, which is sheltered by the entrance to a large Marina and inner harbour and this sort of big sand dune!

We wandered around the marina for a bit, millions of pounds worth of toys, it being played with – how sad?

Then we happened upon this – how cool!

A nice walk on this wild day, now to let the wind blow us back down the beach and home.

Two thoughts of the day:

Why is the uploading of photos so slow here?

Why do they pack static caravans in so tightly? You really wouldn’t want to be that close to your neighbours- all those lovely windows looking at someone else’s windows!
