Another lazy day on day 4, more swimming in the sea, more cocktails… However I got up for sunrise (again) but this time went into the mountain first, then came back down to the beach.
The weather promised me that it the clouds would go for the sunset, but an hour before the sun would dip below the horizon line, it was still pretty cloudy.
I decided it was worth the risk, and the trip out, so I put some clothes back on (I’d had a shower and gotten straight into my jim jams from the Abbey walk earlier in the day) and off we went up the hill out of the valley to the car park at the top.
How patiently I waited when we got to the car park at the top! I wandered around trying to find a good patch of heather, set up shop and waited. The longer I waited the more the clouds parted.
Every day there has been a rainbow at around the same time (just before sunset) in the same place. How bizarre!
A gym session in the morning and two walks has left us a bit pooped.
The weather said it was going to be cloudy but sunny this evening, so I decided to go out to shoot the sunset. My idea was backlit heather. When I got to the place I was going to take the photo there were a few other people there. Some had been out and were going back to their car, others were there with camera in hand – maybe they’d had the same idea as me?
We were all to be disappointed if that was the case though, as the clouds were all along the horizon and so there wasn’t really a sunset worth photographing. This was actually the second shot I took, but I thought it wouldn’t work out so I carried on shooting. Turns out this was the only decent shot I had.
Clearly I forgot to publish this, so it will be a bit of a photo dump of the last couple of days whilst we were in Wales !
Today there are gale force winds in Wales. So naturally we decided to go up a mountain. Where it was really exposed. And there was no where to get away from the wind. Classic idea!
The day after we went to Yyns Llanddwyn. This was a great little place to visit, and one of the highlights of the trip for me. Although nothing will beat the ship wrecked boats!
Today the weather forecast said it would rain heavily all afternoon. As seems to be the theme of this holiday, the weather forecast was wrong. Anyway, we set out with getting back before the weather turned in mind.
It was quite quiet, which is just what I like. Sadly though, my lighter ran out whilst we were there and so I couldn’t set off my smoke bomb 😦
Today we went up to the viewpoint at Aksla. We also bought loads of goodies from the supermarket.
Tomorrow we are going to go to Sukkertoppen as we ran out of time today, and it will take about 4 hours to walk to, up and back down. I think the weather from this point gets a bit more … hit and miss, as today has been lovely and sunny!
