Borth-y-Gest - Part 1 - 1/5

In July last year we took a weeks holiday in North Wales at the small coastal village of Borth-y-Gest, a short drive from the town of Porthmadog. We managed to get a first floor apartment looking out over the small bay and this was the view from the garden, I have been using this image for the wallpaper on my PC for several months now.

Looks like a lovely, quiet, peaceful place. Lucky you.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little place and only a short walk or drive from Porthmadog.
A really beautiful composition!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
Jolie vue sur cette mer tranquille.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little place to spend some time.

It is a charming picture postcard image Brian
Brian Walbey: It's that sort of place.
I can see why this place would be a dream for you, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It was very quiet, not even any shops!
A fine view to enjoy Brian
Brian Walbey: It was Bill, sadly there was some works going on with the sea wall, which are just out of picture, which just knocked the edge off what we expected., oh and the weather was dire up until midweek!

It must bring back good memories, seeing this picture every day, Brian
Brian Walbey: It does in a way Lisl, the weather was dire up until Thursday when that heat wave we had last year started and there were some works going on with the sea wall so it tunred out to be not quite as idyllic as we remembered from a visit some eyars ago.

This is such a lovely view and I understand why you use it as a wallpaper, Brian. I can just sit here and enjoy.....
Brian Walbey: We sat and enjoyed while we were there, sadly the weather was dire up until Thursday when that heat wave we had last year started and there were some works going on with the sea wall so it tunred out to be not quite as idyllic as we remembered from a visit some years ago.
Northern Wales would be a heavenly place to visit. I will be glad to tag along.
Brian Walbey: The whole of Wales is a beautiful country, North, South and Central, and each area has its own special attractions, but the Morth is the one we've been to most often.
Wow, Brian, you really did have a wonderful view of the bay from the garden.
Brian Walbey: yes we did Beverly.

How delightful. It looks very uncommercialisegd and so all the better for that. I wandered to here rom Porthmadog but under grey leaden skies. I was disappointed that the couple of cafes were full up and so could not get a cuppa before heading back.
Brian Walbey: It is a nice little place although when we were there they were doing a lot of works to the sea wall, hence th barge moored up on the right hand side. There is only those two cafes, one is very expensive and a bit up-market in the evenings.
A lovely place Brian, I can see why you liked it so much.

I like how you lead us into the water, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It made for a natural lead in.
