When we walked over the iconic wooden railway bridge into Barmouth they had a drawing of the plans to link the end of the bridge with the town and they looked impressive.
When it is done it'll avoid the potentially dangerous main road into town

Conditions were perfect very early this morning as it was dry and there was a very low tide so I took a couple of friends to see the Hubert Stone memorial on the side of the Little Orme.   The memorial was set up in memory of a young boy who sadly died there in 1897 and his father had the memorial set up where his body was found by Pierce Jones and 2 colleagues.
Both guys had never seen the memorial before so now they know exactly where it is.
It's not difficult to get to but the rocks are slippy and you have to be very careful when you walk over the rocks.
Above the site are colonies of various nesting sea birds and they created quite a noise when we were near the nests so we didn't want to alarm them and just stayed there as long as we needed to and took some photos and then carefull made our way back to the cars.
