With Helen on the Barmouth lifeboat

Day 52 – Gwynedd – Towyn to Barmouth

Day 52 – Tywyn to Barmouth

You win some, you lose some. After three days of stunning cliff paths, today was back on the roads, my favourite surface – not! Taking care of my shins. The coast path proper was mostly road too, but perversely further inland to avoid the rather dangerous A road, which I walked anyway in quiet Sunday morning dreich. All more grist for the mill that is my thoughts about official routes. More on that, but not for now.

I couldn’t help noticing as I passed the little station at Tonfanau at 7:30 that the first train due was at 10:50. There’s a lot to be said for walking as I arrived in Fairbourne before it did.

RNLI is one of my two charities for the Coast17 walk, and on arrival in Barmouth I was given a warm welcome at the lifeboat station by Helen, a fellow photographer and crew member. Not only that but she and her husband Ian put me up overnight and treated me with great company and food – thanks guys. I got a VIP behind the scenes tour around the lifeboat station too. Read the RNLI News Release.

The sun is now shining on the Barmouth crowds and I’m putting my feet up for a bit. Enjoy your Sundays.
