Out for the day

This is where we have been today.
And this was one of those North Wales traffic queues, sheep on the road.
I suppose you could call it a sheep jam.
We had lunch in Criccieth and then meandered on to the Lleyn Peninsula and down to the tip. If we'd popped across to Whistling Sands, we could have swum across to  Ireland.
Maybe next time!


  1. It's a while since I've been down the Lleyn. My brother and sil had a place there to escape from the Wirral. It was a real haven.

  2. I love it. It seems to have an atmosphere and ambiance of its own, a little different to the rest of north west Wales.

  3. It looks as if it was rather cloudy - Sunday was blue skies over here.

    1. Yes it was. Unfortunately, we moved away from the sun!

  4. Ah! The Lleyn Peninsula... a magical kingdom that time forgot. We must go back there.

  5. I always wanted to drive all the way down to the tip, but we never managed it. I live a bit too far away from it now for it to be practical :)

    (And hello again from a reader of your blog from about ten years ago!)

  6. Welcome back!So nice to hear from you again and I do hope life is being good to you down there in that there Australia. You're right, it would be a long journey back here to north Wales, but worth it, of course. ;)

  7. The joys of rural areas. At least it was daylight. Skittish lambs not close enough to their mums can be exciting.

  8. Your blog is very useful for me.I really like you post.Thanks for sharing.
