North Wales Path and Coast

Our first full day in North Wales and today would be an inland walk, a waterfall and lastly a coast walk.

We drove north towards Bangor passing the entrance to Penrhyn Castle to park at the coast near the Spinnies Nature Reserve to the east of the estuary of the Afon Ogwen.



We followed a lane southwards, past a local church to join the North Wales path and this took us on an easterly meandering route around to Aber Falls.





Part way along we stopped for a coffee only to be joined by a large flock of sheep who wrongly assumed we would be feeding them!


There are two waterfalls to admire the first a little smaller than the main Aber Falls but no less worth admiring. At the main fall there were a lot more visitors and the only people we had seen for the day. When we three were last here, the main falls were mainly frozen but today it was almost spring like.






We walked down the valley towards Abergwyngregin, steadfastly passing the cafe with its siren call of coffee and cake and on down to the coast. From here we followed the Wales Coast Path back to the car.


Beware high tide.
