Storm Ali whips through Harlech….

Well it is pretty wild here, and has been all day, with gusts of up to 60 mph forecast we decided not to venture far and maintain a level of ballast in the van!!!

We went for a long walk along Harlech beach this afternoon and though it was quite tough walking against the wind, quite exhilarating at the same time and a breeze walking back!

The winds gave whipped up all the smaller pebbles and partially covered them in little sand dunes, making it look like the surface of the moon or should I say what I think the surface of the moon looks like!

With a whole sandstorm thing going on over the actual dunes, sand covering you footsteps within seconds.

We returned to site covered in tiny little particles of sand, mad hair and sandblasted cheeks – now if this wind will just let up a little overnight we shall sleep well!

Two thoughts of the day:

Ok so the wind in the trees is one thing but why are all those noisy squabbling crows in the trees immediately behind us?

Is it nearly summer yet?
