Wednesday evening 14 May 2014
After a lengthy tour of Penrhyn castle and a brief diversion through Llandudno on a small peninsula north of Anglesey, we stopped for dinner supplies at a Welsh Farm Food attraction, then pressed back on up and over the mountains past Betws-y-Coed (Betis-y-coid) back to Dolgellau through idyllic Cymru countryside, turning aside towards Borth, and finding ourselves on a seaside lane facing the setting sun in a hostel where only one other couple was residing.
My first stop was to climb the promenade seawall and approach the shore of cobblestone on sand facing west into a bright sunset on a shallow shore of calm water with minor swells. A peaceful shore, but not beachy, it was not appealing for swimming, but for dreaming. We ate well and slept well, enjoying some television viewing and Ben and Jerry’s Fish Food ice cream purchased at discount from the Family Store down the lane.
