I wasn’t sure what to do about today. I didn’t know whether to have a total rest day or just carry on. So I decided to compromise and do a half day instead.
I rejoined the Wales Coast Path at Pontllyfni. As with the previous day, the route was a rather dull stretch next to the A499. But to my left shoulder was the ominous sight of Gyrn Ddu, towering.
Whilst in front of me was Yr Eifl, the mountain range consisting of three peaks. This was what I could see so prominently from Ynys Môn on a fine day as I rounded the south west tip.
I ambled onwards next to the traffic but trying to concentrate on the mountains instead. Finally a right hand turn took me off the road and towards Trefor. I was overjoyed at reaching the quiet beach, and even more thrilled to be greeted there by this happy-looking tractor.
