A Trip to Wales

We arrived back at Great Haywood on Wednesday 24th and took Rock n Roll into the marina for a couple of nights whilst we take a trip to North Wales (the county of Gwynedd) so that I could attend the retirement lunch for a great friend and former colleague Chris.
We stayed in Friog in a small guest house a few hundred yards from where we lived before selling up to cruise Rock n Roll
Thursday saw us all on Fairbourne Beach; the first time Molly has encountered sand - she loved it and the wide open space - but she wasn't keen on the sea!
looking past the railway bridge down the Mawddach Estuary
a very peaceful scene with Cadair Idris in the background
the lovely voice of a song thrush caught our attention
time for that lunch at Meifod Country Hotel in Bontnewydd near Caernarfon  ...
... a bunch of the best of NHS North West Wales!
We spent a very pleasant evening with the best neighbours/friends you could ever wish for and
Molly met her half sister Pip (same father different mother) for the first time since she (Molly) was 8-weeks old (Pip is 6 now and Molly 2)
travelling over the bwlch near to Dinas Mawddwy on the way back today (Friday 26th George's birthday!)
we've had quite a few short sharp showers this afternoon ...
... this rainbow was awsome!

    Thanks for letting us know about our boat being out of the water. I was going to ring them as Kev wanted it done for when he gets home.They are good lads in that workshop.
