A grand day out

8.30a.m. saw us on the road heading for the Lleyn Peninsular. Yes, I did say 8.30a.m. As I get up at 5.30 during the week, I could be forgiven for looking forward to a bit of a lie in at the weekend, but the prospect of a ramble around the wilds of North Wales was too tempting, especially as the weather promised to be good. We both really enjoy our days out and this was no exception. Every time we go, we find somewhere new, with spectacular scenery. North Wales is definitely undersold. (See photos).
Mind you, you see unusual sights too - like cormorants and sheep on the beach at Llanfaer - not together, but sheep in Wales don't stick to fields like they do everywhere else. Then there was a huge lump of rusty iron that Keith got very excited about - he said it was a lathe. Couldn't quite see the attraction myself. You obviously need a male mind to appreciate such things!The golf course at Morfa Nefyn was unusual to say the least. It's right on the coast. Where else would you have to practically climb a rock face to reach the tee for the 15th hole! The building behind me in the photo is the site of the tee. As far as we could see, the green had to be in Ireland and it was a par 2353!!!
We did a lot of walking too - as you can see from the photo of Keith....er, resting :-)
