A MINI ADVENTURE 

Squib Week in Abersoch seems to be an annual event for us ..He goes sailing with Toby Taylor and I chill usually having driven my Smart4two down in convoy to give us more scope for a bit of wild camping and convenience for John to get to SCYC (South Carnarvonshire Yacht Club) as we camp about 5 miles out… not this year ..exhausted ..I think too much partying (Johns post birthday event )and child minding has blown my energy ..so we hired a small car in Pwhelli after driving here in Hetty on Thursday ..but their insurance won’t cover me to drive it as I’m TOO OLD ..screams ….but I don’t care one way or the other .. I love being here on the beach at Porth Neigwl with the surfers ..


The drive seemed so stress free after the up and up and narrow streets of our last Europe tour …even the main Street in Abersoch held no fear with all the holiday people parking up in ludicrous places ..The sunset as we parked up was another belter …and so to bed after a shop bought pizza and caulslaw ..yum yum ..
What a good nights sleep ..so quiet .. No cars whizzing about or drunks walking down the road noisily and the Hymer bed is so much more comfy than ours at home .. Heaven is wild camping ..Friday came and Toby picked J up to go back to Pwhelli to pick up the hire car and then back again to sail the boat over after launching A good breeze got them back to Abersoch in quick sticks ..meanwhile made a curry and I read a whole book ..lovely ..
HETTY’S sleepyspot

Classic Hymer arrived .. A big one ..It was Tim and Donna with whom I’d had a conversation with on the classic Hymer Facebook group just the day before ..had a chat and a glass or two .. Next day we had more Hymer people turn up who actually knew us from this blog ..fame at last ..WOW Wall to wall sun shine John had the morning off so a walk on the beach was the order of the day .. Just a couple of people on at 9am .. Perfect ..until the runners started ..a 75 mile race from Pwhelli and back round the Llyn peninsular .. Hells bells I feel tired just writing about it .. We walked for a couple of hours and off he went sailing whilst I sat out to read another book .. OUCH I forgot I hadn’t worn shorts for years .. NO sunscreen on my knees ..a little red to say the least .. He laughed … Good thing I had after sun lotion … Still hummingly hot today .. and very stinging and red … Soft jeans are worn …
The day started with a cool wind with cloud but now it’s sunny again but no sitting out without a towel over my very sore knees … Lots of surfers here today

Making a move tomorrow down to Abersoch ..He needs to take the hire car back ..a 8am meet with Toby to take Him back to Pwhelli .. Me I’m having to socialise again ..sighs …up to the car park for the day at SCYC for the late afternoon race and supper in the club .. At least I may get some Wyfy to publish my blog with photos ..fingers crossed ..I complain massively about low or slow Wyfy in Europe well this complaint is about NON NIL Wyfy in Wales ..

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.

One thought on “A MINI ADVENTURE ”

  1. We spend the majority of our weekends on the Llyn, but normally wild camp on the north coast, either at Port Ysgaden or Porth Iago. There’s also a nice wild camping spot on the grass car park at the top of Porth Meudwy, not far from Aberdaron that we’ve used in the past – we love the LLyn! It looks from the photos that you found a good place to park up – quite unusual to find a car park that allows overnights stops these days, which is a shame as we all spend money in the local community.
