After surviving Storm Betty, we got up early to explore more of North Wales, by visiting the small village of Morfa Nefyn on the north coast of the Llŷn Peninsula. The plan was to walk to the old fishing village of Porthdinllaen, which is primarily accessible via the beach.
The car park was atop the cliffs, so we descended some steep steps in strong winds. Luckily, once we reached the shoreline, it was more sheltered. We walked along the bottom of the cliffs, traversing sand and rocks, passing abandoned weathered ship anchors and brightly painted moored boats.
We finally arrived at the secluded bay, with plenty of boats stationed in the water and the Tŷ Coch Inn prominently displayed on the seafront, nestled directly on the beach. Monty played in the water and we watched a few children swimming; it was far too cold for me.
On the way back, we had to take a slight detour. This was because the tide had eaten most of the beach that we walked along on the way out. Luckily, it was all still passable, as we carefully stepped over the rocks and a conveniently placed path cut out of the cliff.
The final challenge was to climb back up the steps to the car.
