Sunlight on the hillside

We went out to Penmaenpool again last Saturday – well, we started with a walk: the precipice walk, high up above the Mawddach estuary.

Strange gnarly trees

We walked round a lake with strange, gnarly trees growing out of it.

Mr Uney told me on the way round that it was a favourite with the Victorians – first written about by the likes of George Borrow and Thomas Pennant, it became very popular.

Bertie enjoyed himself

I’m not sure how the Victorian ladies in their long skirts found the walk, but Bertie loved it!

You can almost see the George III from here...

After we’d made the circuit, we went to the George III for lunch (of course) and a pint each of Purple Moose beer. Then we went out to Fairbourne for a look at some coastal scenery – and Barmouth.

Sunlight on the hills (again!)

The low afternoon sun cast a lovely light over the nearby hills, the beach and even made Barmouth look rather lovely…
