Great to be back on the Wales Coast Path after a couple of months break.
The walk took us from Rhoslefain to Aberdyfi. Storm Brian hadn’t quite finished blowing itself out, so we were holed up in the pretty harbour town of Aberdovey, or Aberdyfi as we say in these parts, for a couple of days. No great hardship, a bit of retail therapy, lots of places to eat and drink, and our wee flat was right on the harbour.
Eventually the rain cleared and we headed out with gusto.
Leaving our car in a farm lane in Rhoslefain, making sure we caused no obstruction, we followed the track, then field to field, aiming for a large White House in the distance, then onto the road at Bwlch, passing the railway station in Tonfanau.
It is a brilliant day for walking – the air is clear, everything looks newly washed and laundered after the storm.
We take the cycle path across the Afon Dysynni. The walk to Tywyn is pretty straight forward. The caravans – sorry mobile homes, along the front soon come into sight. Lots of dog walkers about, glad to be out in the sunshine, their dogs bundles on energy.
When the lengthy promenade in Tywyn comes to an end, we eventually reach the sand dunes, it was easy to follow the path passing Aberdyfi golf course, one of the best links courses in Wales. We dropped down onto the pebble foreshore – the tide was out, so we were able to make our way across the pebbles onto the long sandy beach all the way to Aberdyfi, skirting the Yacht Club to reach our apartment located over Nandora’s dress shop.
Dinner at Coast Deli was the end of a perfect day’s walking.
