We arrived at our home for the week amidst pouring rain and gale force wind. We sat in the car for a bit not daring to brave the 31 steps down to the cottage, and when we did we tried to minimise the number of trips back and forth by carrying as much as we could safely carry.

This was a Thursday to Thursday let, which was strange and we got really confused as to what day of the week it was. As I said Thursday was wet and windy but Friday was absolutely beautiful and we drove down to the bay and spent the morning walking along the beach from one end to the other

and because it was so nice we had lunch in the garden
Of course we woke on Saturday to rain, so we headed out for supplies and then lit the fire and snuggled down for the day
Sunday was again a beautiful day. We headed across the Peninsular to Morfa Nefyn and parked up and walked the beach and up over a golf course and back. Beautiful views.
We then headed along to Aberdaron - great bakers shop - eccles cakes, we ate a few
Then as we were making the most of the good weather we went to the Whistling Sands. By the end of the afternoon we lost the sun but it had been a good day.
Monday was cold, dry and grey so we headed out in the car to Cricceth, Beddgelert, Porthmadog and finally Llanbedrog beach

That proved to be the end of the good weather, Tuesday and Wednesday we stayed at the cottage. Plenty of reading and knitting in front of the wood burner
I think if we were to go back to Wales then we would go earlier in the year. Most of the cafes and restaurants were closed for the season and like High Streets all over the country lots of empty shop units or businesses for sale. Sign of the times I guess. Also the remote location of the cottage would be great for bright sunny evenings but driving in the dark on single track mountain roads in the rain is not my idea of fun. But we had a good time, it made a change but I think we will be going back to Southwold next autumn
