Tywyn – the seaside
After all exertions up the path we decided that a trip to the seaside was in order. Once in Tywyn we followed the signs to the sea front and parked overlooking the bay.
There were some big breakers on the beach and we took the opportunity for a bracing walk along the promenade.
We sat in the car to eat our packed lunch and watched the waves.
On the promenade I read about all the sea life that were in the bay. Sadly nothing visible today. Before we left we noticed this shaft of light breaking through the clouds.
After topping up with diesel we explored some more. We went along Sandilands Road. After we had passed hoeses and a caravan park the road ran straight along the coast. To our left was an embankment that carried the railway. The road stopped at whet we guessed used to be either a ford or a ferry. This was where we came to Afon Dysynni.
We could see the road carry on over the other side of the water. After we parked we went up to the pedestrian bridge and then down below it to the water.
Looking over the water.
There was one padlock on the pedestrian bridge.
After our walk around we went back to the car and left Tywin looking for one of the nearby sights recommended by Simon’s book.
