Heading North – 27 June 2012

After the Gwili Railway trip, our next stop was at the Forestry Commission site at Bwlch Nant yr Arian. This was a good place for lunch, and to enjoy the landscape. While the red kites didn’t get low enough for me to get any clear pictures of them[1], we did at least see them wheeling overhead. Not only that, but we could just see Aberystwyth in the distance. From there, the next stop was on the coast at Borth, where the gulls were much more obliging, and did let me get some good shots. Not only that, but the sun shone a bit, too.

We then passed through some stunning countryside and passed through Barmouth before stopping at Harlech. Last year, the rain was so heavy at Harlech that I had to abandon the plan of taking pictures of the castle, but this time it was a lot better. All that can be seen in the gallery below.
