The Behindness Of Things 1/5

A short series taken from behind the participants during our recent week in North Wales.

 

As you will see during the coming week, apart from Wednesday's post which was elsewhere, our visit to Criccieth was made on a very dull, windy and dismal day.  It didn't stop Maureen enjoying a few minutes sit on the seafront while I was off taking pictures.

This is a wonderful picture... "What the Missus saw!".

The sea can be at its most beautiful on cloudy, stormy days.
Brian Walbey: It is such a lovely place Ray, we holidayed there a few years ago, that one can enjoy it rain or shine.

There's never a bad day on holiday, Brian; just a bad choice of clothes (although Maureen looks well prepared).
Brian Walbey: We always make sure we have wet weather stuff in the car Alan.

Pity the weather was so dull Brian: this is a fine part of the world
Brian Walbey: Criccieth is a lovely place Chris, we holidayed there a few years ago in a seafront hotel just behind me, what a view in the sunshine.

Maureen is very patient I think and does not mind at all to wait for you with a view like that.
A long time ago I was in Wales, would not mind to make that trip again.
Wonderful picture again, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Wales is a beautiful country Astrid, especially the area in the North where we were. Maureen does get a tad iffy sometimes with me taking pictures, mind you i did take over 600 on this 6 day holiday, who can blame her!

I'm guessing Maureen is very calm, cool and collected after one of these sits, Brian. Good for her...and you! What a view.
Brian Walbey: Despite the weather we strolled off and had a gorgeous ice cream cone after this Ginnie, the view on a sunny day is even better, one can see for miles down the coast.

Maureen looks a bit chilly Brian.
Love the view from your viewpoint.
Brian Walbey: It was a bit blowy Tracy, but a nice afternoon all the same.
We Brits can take it Brian!
Brian Walbey: Of course we can Bill, we don't have much choice. Sadly after all last weeks weather our Grandson is on a school trip to the Black Country museum today, how unlucky.
Lovely photo and it is not exactly the back of beyond.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Chad.
Very nice shot of the beach being watched by your beloved.
Brian Walbey: She was being very patient while I took photos Mary.
I can see why she wants to sit down and take in that landscape, it is gorgeous!!! Even when dull and grey. I love Wales!! It is so similar to Ireland!!
Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more Marion, Criccieth is a lovely place and when the sun is shining I would choose it over Benidorm et al any day.
I am sure Maureen enjoyed this beautiful view!
Fine capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, we both liked the view even with the dull weather.
lovely place, shame about the weather though
Brian Walbey: It is a very nice resort Derek, quiet most of the time but set in lovely coastline.

A very nice scene Brian. I think the lady in the shot makes the picture a good one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Shaun. That lady is indeed my wife Maureen so that definitely makes it a good shot smile
You just gotta make the best of our climate Brian, just make sure you wrap up warm..... in the summer I mean. :o)
Look forward to the coming days, an interesting concept and a good one to start with.
Brian Walbey: Thanks George. I hope you enjoy the series.
Very dull and damp by the look of it, and cold. You've captured that chilly outing very well.
Brian Walbey: It was a miserable day Sheila, the previous day had been fantastic. Welsh weather, who'd have it smile
We've had some great holidays in Wales over the years and fine weather also, but over the last five years things have definitely changed for the worse. Wives are long suffering when it comes to photography smile
Brian Walbey: We go to Wales most years if we can, this year the weather was a mixed bag. Maureen didn't know I took this but when she looked round I got a great family style shot of her.

Shame the weather was so poor Brian. maureen would need her woolies on here.
Brian Walbey: We both had our woolies on that day Scotia.
One thing about the weather is you have the place to yourself. Nice shot brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks janet. Surprisingly the place was quite busy with other retirees like us.
What a great image! Hateful weather, but it doesn`t seem to have spoiled the day. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn. No we had a pleasant time. An ice cream followed this moment.
