Where I really went...

There was a brief spell of dry weather around midday and the rain/hail held off long enough for a walk down the old railway trail. As I was a bit fed up of walking the first few miles of the track, I drove to Penmaenpool and walked from there to Abergwynant and back.

Mawddach Estuary

Canada geese

There were a lot of Canada geese by the water, also a couple of herons, which were too far away to photograph.

Stunted tree by the estuary

A tree stunted and shaped by the wind. I've fiddled with this in PhotoShop in an attempt to make the tree stand out more, but it's still not as clear as I would like.

Almost back at the car, the sky turned ominously grey! I just made it to the car before the heavens opened and the hail came down!
