Tyla Images Expedition Around Wales Day 19...

Porth Dinllaen To Nefyn...

Hmmm, Screwed up quite a bit today. For Some reason I slowly packed up, got in my boat & then & only then did I actually focus on the sea & look at what it was doing?
I had been looking at the view all morning, (hard not too), but it hadn't occurred to me to check the sea state & the sea state was pretty rough, whoops!
There were white caps everywhere & a decent surf.
Not a promising start but as I was already in my boat I decided to give it a go.

It was well bumpy in Porth Dinllaen at the large bay was facing the wind. A couple of times I got hit side on by some big waves but managed to brace & bongo slide my way out of trouble. It cant be a good omen to be fighting with the sea this early in the day so I gingerly make my way to Nefyn beyond the next headland & look for a camp spot.

I planned to sit it out on the beach & carry on if the conditions improved.
It was cold in the wind so I put my inner tent up for shelter not wanting to fully unpack just incase I got another chance to get going. I chose my spot carefully on landing so that & didn't have to move to set up camp for the night & By about 4PM I admitted defeat & set up camp properly.

My GPS seems to be buggered & kept switching off though it usually does that if it gets knocked & I did have some large waves break onto be so maybe it was that...
