Mountains or sea?

Poles traditionally ask each other whether they holidayed in the mountains or by the sea, the two being at opposite ends of the country. In North Wales, you can do both. On the same day. Above, the view from the top of the highest peak on the Llyn Peninsula, Yr Eifl (564 m above sea level). If that seems low, bear in mind this peak is but two kilometres from the sea.

Above: The view from the top of Carn Fadryn (371 m), the highest peak at the western end of the Llyn Peninsula. Below,Warren Beach, between Abersoch and Llanbedrog. We have been blessed with good weather this week!

Poles have spread everywhere across the UK. We kept on bumping into them in the most unlikely places. Below: Even here, at the summit of Carn Fadryn, there are signs of their presence.
