Heading up onto Yr Eifl

Day 59 – Gwynedd – Nefyn to Dinas Dinlle

Day 59 – Nefyn to Dinas Dinlle
A tale of two selfies today, made within just a couple of hours. I set out at six and hauled myself over Yr Eifl, a decent mountain as far as the British coast goes. Pity there was no visible sign of it; it hammered down, drenching me to the skin with horizontal dreich. No waterproof clothes keep that out.

And then I got to Trefor where the clouds rolled back. I stood dripping in the new sunlight outside the village store. A local man asked me how I was. “Very wet” I said. I was probably beginning to steam too.

Trouble is, the good weather accompanied another long road plod, with which I am now thoroughly fed up. But I’m too chilled to rant now as there’s a grand view of Snowdonia inland – Moelwyns and the Snowdon massif – and of Yr Eifl along the coast.

I was welcomed into a very plush campsite at Dinas Dinlle who also are supporting RNLI – thank you so much for making it easy.

On then to Caernarfon tomorrow and most likely the end of this stage. And I’m really looking forward to company.
