Last day of freedom!

We stopped for breakfast this morning at the Little Chef at Halkyn. From there you can look across the Mersey and, on a clear day, you can see Liverpool's two cathedrals on the horizon. It was not a clear day!

Lunch was at Aberdaron on the Lleyn Peninsular but by then it was cold, rainy and very windy.

Keith is the figure on the bridge, refusing to turn round to have his picture taken.

Lots of heather around this year.

And me, battling with the wind at Uwchmynydd, with Bardsey Island in the background.


  1. We had two lovely holidays on the Lleyn peninsula. To me it seemed like a magical, undiscovered land. I am returning your good wishes for the new school year. Remember if you get over-stressed you can now counsel yourself!

  2. Unfortuntely, (to quote the Nationwide advert), it doesn't work like that, YP.:)

  3. Good luck for the new year. I start back on Wednesday. Love the photo's especially the heather.

  4. How do you come to have two days more than us, Rosie! 'Snot fair!!

  5. Hi Jenny

    You did a fair trek for a day out, didn't you ?! Did you go and see the Tin Man on top of the cliffs ? I love Aber, nice and peaceful and beautiful if you get the right weather (and company !)

    I hope first day of school went well, I was thinking of you :0)

  6. Goodness! However is "Uwchmynydd" pronounced?!

  7. Beautiful photos Jenny :o)
    I love Welsh names and words, they never have any vowels in them!!

  8. It was a good day out, Craig. Today was the first day with the children in and I am totally exhausted tonight.

    Thanks, Michelle. y, w are vowels in Welsh.

    Nikki, it is pronounced 'Ukmunnith' if that makes any sense. :)
