Winter walking has you studying the weather forecast closer than you would for a family wedding!
We decided to cut the walk short, covering some 5 miles, as rain and high winds were due at 1pm.
The colourful beach huts in the National Trust car park made me smile. Fortunately my NT membership card was in my back pack, so no need to pay the parking fee.
Down to the beach we go. I had never been to Llanbedrog in the winter, so it was strange to see it devoid of people, as it is teeming in the summer months.
We walked along the beach then up some steps into a field. We elected to drop down onto the beach after Carreg y Defaid, while the WCP route sticks to the fields above. We realised why when we reached the sea defences and had to scrambled upwards to rejoin the path as it runs alongside the golf course.
From the Promenade it is a short walk into the town centre for a little retail therapy, bought heaps of Christmas pressies at Tonnau gallery,before heading to Dylan’s in Criccieth for a very long and enjoyable lunch. The rain came as we were making our way into the restaurant. The weather forecast had been spot on, we didn’t care. We still loved the Lleyn, but it was almost time to go home. Until the next time ….
