Weight and Stuff Report – 19 July 2012

Woo, hoo, etc. Down a bit today. All quite random, of course.

I did walk in as far as Gateshead today, due to a slight bus pass issue[1], but then got the Metro.

No other reports for now, other than this little bubble car. I remember seeing ones similar to this when I was a kid. Strange little things…

[1] For reasons that I may explain in a few days, I didn’t renew my magic smartcard, and got a weekly general purpose pass instead, which I had to buy in person in some quaint old-fashioned way

Along the coast – 29 June 2012

After the Ffestiniog Railway trip, we visited a few places on the coast. In Pwlleli there were some interesting contrasts – somewhat run-down old shops with glass canopies that must once have been quite up-market, and a short distance away, a marina full of expensive-looking boats. Not to mention a hotel with a nifty sign. Abersoch had a part-time road and a nice bit of coastline, and things were starting to get a bit rough at Aberdaron. Here are the pictures.
