Isolated beach
9/52 for the group 2018 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: I is for Isolated.

Nefyn is popular in the summer, but at the end of February, it looks very empty. It's also quite a long way from everywhere, so we're currently staying in a holiday bungalow in Pwllheli.

Isolated beach

Well, I said we're staying in a holiday bungalow, but I'm actually posting this from home. We thought there would be wifi, but BT let the cottage owner down and it won't be installed until Easter, so I only have my phone with a rather feeble signal for internet access.

Anyway, we've had a couple of excellent days of exploring, looking for locations for G's book, but this morning we woke up to snow, so we've nipped home for a few hours to have a quick catchup online. We're setting off back to Pwllheli now so I'll see you all again at the weekend.

Lovely! Must admit I prefer my beaches in winter, when Max and I can have them more or less to ourselves...

I could have done without the wind chill that made it feel like about -5 deg C, but I agree that the beaches are much nicer out of season.

Thanks. There are some beautiful beaches around the coast of Wales. We're very lucky.

I like it. It looks like a place where you could sit down by yourself for a while.

You would have frozen to death last week! The temperature was only about 0 deg C, but there was a very strong wind and it felt much colder. But give it a few weeks for the weather to warm up and it will be a beautiful spot to sit for a while.

I'll wait, then.

We have had a couple of very cold (20 minus or so), but calm and sunny days lately. Now it's warmer, but still nice.
