The coast of Wales

Finding my feet

semi-overcast 16 °C
View Wild Atlantic Way Ireland on tjcampergirl's travel map.

So far my highlights are:

Freebies: apples, conkers, drift wood, overnight stays, and blackberries in abundance.

Stunning views: the Snowdonian National park is wonderful, loved driving through them, they go on for miles. Of course the Welsh Coastline is really breathtaking. I was surprised how beautiful I found Ffestiniog slate mines and landscape was, really beautiful as I drove through. I keep saying wow as I am driving along.

Being scared: which is a highlight as it is a growing/developing thing, to face the fear and do it anyway. So driving the big van of course, but actually doing okay, provided I concentrate and do not get too distracted by the view. Crossing over a wooden bridge, that I later discovered I was actually too heavy for (see photo). Windy when on Shell Island, the van got blown around, however I now quite like it being close to the elements, learning how to park correctly takes away some of the worry. Crossing over the sea estuary in a tiny motor boat, described as a ferry.

Low points: well thank goodness for social media as I have managed to stay in touch with my family and friends, and I am getting used to days without WiFi, learning to be chilled about it, one day I will not need to remind myself to relax.

So off down to the beach shortly, going to have a swim it will be freezing and will probably only be in there a minute or too, low tide is around 1.30 so that is the best time to head out.
