A visit to the seaside

We are trying to go out more to places that are nearby but beyond walking distance -- at least for me. Yesterday we took advantage of a fine day to visit Barmouth. G walked along the Mawddach Trail (10 miles), I gave him a head start and then drove there in time to have a walk along the beach. We met and had a sandwich lunch together on the prom before driving home.

I saw the tractor bring the IRB down to the sea and they launched it. They didn't seem to be in a hurry, so I assume it was just a practice session not a real rescue.

The giant wooden head is new because the old one disintegrated over the winter, having been gradually worn away by the weather over the years.
