Llanberis and Abersoch


We got ready to leave Bethesda. We needed to empty grey and black waste but the security lock on the black waste drain was stuck and the staff couldn’t open it either so Andy got his screw driver out and unscrewed the lock from its fixing in the floor so he could open the lid. Once done we set off to have another look at Betws y coed before heading through Llanberis pass to the ‘car park for Snowdon'.  

Llanberis pass was spectacular. We explored Llanberis for a while and had a pint in 'The Heights' Hotel and walked along side the lake.

As it was getting late we decided to head back to the van and make our way to Abersoch and our overnight park up in the car park at the top of the hill. We had stayed here before on the 12th November and we found that the pay and display machines were still out of order! We had a night in so no pub tonight.  

We slept well in the free car park next to another van and awoke refreshed in the morning and ready for the next leg of our trip. We had started our Wales trip in the Forest of Dean on the 1st November and then drove across the top of the Brecon beacons to Aberystwyth before heading north along the west coast. We had seen the most significant towns along the west coast north of Aberystwyth including Anglesey and inland to Betws-y-coed and Llanberis. Now we are going to head south down the west coast and end up in Tenby in a week or so and then Aberfan to finish around the 11th December. The adventure continues...
