The village that isn't a mega-port
« Trefor | Aberdaron »

Early this morning Porthdinllaen was still. A light breeze pulled at the sea; the morning sun gave a golden hazy glow to the light. The day had a sense of possibility.

After walking daily for a week it's no surprise that we decided to take it easy today, and slowly making our way along the village street, past the pub and around the rocks to the lifeboat station was the perfect tonic. A little further on three or four grey seals kept us entertained a while as we watched from the clifftops.

We stopped at the last village on the north coast, just in time to make it to the pub before the post-wedding crowd flooded in.
