“PART TWO OF A MINI ADVENTURE”

Headed out of Porth Neigwl earlyHistory of the RAF base at Porth y Neigwl

A family are sleeping on the roof of their car in a tent next to us..you’ve gotta laugh at these resourceful people ..  Last year there were two of the surfers who pegged a tent into the Tarmac next to their car ..I think I’d have put my gear in the tent and slept in the car as I used to do back in the early 80’s in my 2CV ..back seat at home and a single mattress thrown in with Great Dane and pot noodles ..off to the lakes …those were the days …

DO I HAVE TO SLEEP UP THERE ?

A dull day with soft rain ..The chaps out sailing are lost from view in the mist ..Our first sighting of them was on their return to the moorings after two back to back races ..John and Toby are lying 7 th over all and the hope is they may be able to manage a 5th if their luck holds …A girly chatting day as I caught up on friends news ..We know lots of ppl here as a lot of Burwain SC members headed down to Abersoch in the summer months with their children ..Now retired have houses ..caravans and mobile homes in Abersoch ..spending a lot of the year here ..

SO FAR OFF SHORE

 

A HOME COMING

Bear  Grylls has an island in the bay and turned up to pick up some friends from the beach in his super duper rib ..it’s even got wheels to drive up onto the beach ..most impressive but a point was made by club members as he drove off into the mist he had children on board without life jackets on and as Chief Scout one would have thought he would adhere to the safety rules ..A supper was held in South Carnarvon Yacht Club after sailing with a Spanish theme ..sadly even though the food is delicious weight watcher portions were provided …still hungry John and myself went back to Hetty and Ham and mustard sandwiches were devoured ..and so to bed to fight another day here in The Soch

BEAR GRILLS COMING TO PICK UP HIS GUESTS
LOOK CHIEF SCOUT ..NO LIFE JACKETS


Perhaps a little retail therapy ..Abersoch has some fine shops and with the weather being inclement perhaps the crowds of people have gone off somewhere else because they are not on the beach

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.
