Sunday 21 November 2010 - Porth Dinllaen and Penrhyn Nefyn

We are back at home in Timperley tonight after another lovely day on the Lleyn Peninsula.

After parking up at Morfa Nefyn the six of us strolled along the beach (pictured) to Porth Dinllaen, taking care not to step on the stranded jellyfish.

"Are there seals around here?" enquired Jenny.
"I don't know" answered Richard.
"Maybe 'yes'", observed Sue, pointing to a large blubbery mammal that was foraging in some nearby surf.

Circumnavigation of a golf course was then achieved by way of the delightful coast path, with flocks of turnstones, shags, starlings and skylarks in evidence, as well as lone rock pipits and stonechats.

A muddy path led back to a scenic lane (pictured) towards Nefyn, and our afternoon's perambulations drew us on towards luxury residencies of that small town, past a baffled buzzard that had been mugged by crows.

More beach and coast paths found us back at the cars all too soon, after we had rounded the headland of Penrhyn Nefyn in fading light on this last day of our holiday.

Today's was a lovely beach and cliff walk, in beautiful light and with excellent views to the heights of the Peninsula and north to Holyhead Mountain. Curiously, there wasn't a boat to be seen in the vast arc of ocean that was open to our view.

I'll do a brief summary and a slide show next week, if there's time. Meanwhile, thanks go to all who contributed to the enjoyment of our week based in Porthmadog - it was great, we hope to be back soon.
