A couple of photos from yesterday...

Here's a view of the coastal path near Aberdaron.

Coast path near Aberdaron

Just down in that cleft, beyond the bit of fence, there are some layers of gritty stuff fully of pebbles. I commented that it looked very soft for the rocks around here and G explained that it was just a glacial deposit. However, I reckon it could pass as a rock down in some southern coastal areas. :) The Lleyn rocks are, however, of much harder stuff, originally formed by volcanoes just like the Japanese ones that are active today.

Just off the coast lies Ynys Enlli or Bardsey Island to give it its English name. Supposedly 20,000 saints are buried there and it does lay claim to possibly being the real Avalon.

20,000 saints? On such a tiny island? My mind is ever so slightly boggled. I'm surprised there were any left for other places of pilgrimage...

That reminds me so much of Orkney.
