Trefor to Porth Dinllean and return, Sunday 4th November

What a pleasant way to conclude this week’s half term holiday, five days in Center Parcs and then a paddle on Sunday.
Weather and winds were looking good for Sunday so we decided to go along the North side of the Lleyn Peninsula.
I had only been there once when Ga and I did Dinas to Trefor and the return journey, so this time it was to be Trefor head West and then return with the tide, no winds forecasted and that was an accurate prediction, very light winds dying to nothing and for the second time within a month smooth calm and oily seas, Gareth’s nightmare.
Launched from Trefor at around 0930 only a few fishermen around and turned left, clear waters and stunning rock faces and scenery.
Anglesey in the misty distance with Holyhead Mountain vaguely visible.
Cave and rock hoping, several seals and a couple of paddlers, one who would talk to us as we approached I suppose we gave her no choice!
Ty Coch benches in Porth Dinllean for lunch, and after advising a little person to stop messing with our boats off we set again for home.
18.1 miles and a great paddle.
Nightmare again on the A55 road works must remember that, looks like they will be there for some time.
Another piece of the North Wales coastline done and certainly one to take others to explore.

Fantastic rock faces

Went into a cave and came across three seals don,t know who was more frightened.

A pint would have been a pleasant option

More tea vicar!
