Wales Day 14 - recovery and back to the pictures

After spending Saturday in bed and Sunday being a bit feeble, although we did have visitors, the drugs did their job and by Monday I was up and about.
Trefor is a small, rather scruffy town on the north west side of the Lleyn Peninsula, North Wales. It has one shop with very little in it, a post office, working men's club, several garages and a bus station which was on the side we were staying, so that we were woken from 6.30 onwards by the sound of diesel engines moving up the street. It is a quarry town and lies under the shadow of Garn For, the smallest of the three peaks of Yr Eifl and the one whose side is scarred by the granite quarry and works. The quarry has now shut. The beach is stony and has a small harbour and a defunct pier closed off for safety reasons. I can see you are all dying to visit. The first three pictures are of the town, changed to monochrome with Perfect Photo Suite.
We drove down to Morfa Nefyn, still on the north coast, and walked through the golf course to the pub in the small hamlet of Porth Dinllaen, which is only accessible down a track or by sea. We had coffee there and then motored across to a beach near Pwllheli on the south side of the peninsula (last two pictures)

  2. I must agree it does have a certain charm and is certainly not at all touristic, unlike the south coast. Not to mention the mountains.
