Dad is camping in a place called Tudweiliog which is on the north side of the Llyn Peninsula.

He had a great evening last night. Beryl and Terry where excellent hosts and he was wined and dined on salmon, lamb shank, pudding followed by brandy and coffee. Now that is a menu fit for a king! Before the meal they sat and had a beer on the balcony. Dad meet up with a couple and it transpired that my Dad knew her father!

This morning it was a leisurely start and a hearty breakfast and Dad didn't start biking til 11.00 a.m.! From Porthmadog Dad headed to Criccieth . He then picked up a cycle track (well it was the old road which has been turned into a cycle track) into Pwlleli . It was then a ride along the coast road to Llanbedrog and into Abersoch . Many good memories of my childhood holidays! He then headed for Aberdaron which is the most westerly point of Wales. He stopped off for a coffee and a cake. He then cycled along the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula to Tudweiliog. He stopped off to do some shopping for tea tonight but it being a Sunday and being in Wales there was not much open. So he's down to his emergency rations of cup-a-soup, noodles, dates and flapjack!

There is only Dad on the campsite and about 20 sheep! Dad couldn't get a phone signal at his tent so had wandered around the field to find a signal. When he looked back at his tent it was surrounded by the sheep! I don't think he's going to get much sleep tonight .... well if he doesn't he can count them!

Tomorrow he is heading Bangor/Conway area.
