Last week we sneaked away for a few days break. We don't like to go away for too long even though our wonderfully kind neighbour doesn't mind looking after our very elderly cat Max it doesn't seem fair to leave her with the responsibility of giving medications and etc for too long.
Here are a few photos taken whilst we were away.
We walked on a few beaches
Tuesday was very, very wet. We travelled on the West Highland Railway past the pounding and swirling high river in the Glaslyn valley.
Fields and roads were inundated
River banks were swollen, there was nowhere for the water to go. The mountain tops were shrouded in mist.
The next day the sun came out and all seemed well with the world again.
We went beach combing along the beach at Llanbedrog
We walked some of the coastal path .....
.... and came across some unusual sights, this tipi style marquee was being erected for a wedding later in the week.
A walk and coffee and welsh cakes at Borth y Gest
The harbour at Abersoch
where it was finally warm enough to do seaside things - rum and raisin on the left and mango and passion fruit on the right.
I'll be back later in the week to report on a visit to a very special building which was open yesterday for the Heritage Open Days weekend.
