From our rest point in Broad Haven (which we should’ve stayed an extra night in), we set out after breakfast for a quick stop at the atmospheric 12th century grounds of St. Davids about 30 minutes north.
We then took our time, 2 hours weaving along the beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay towards the college town of Aberystwyth for a quick fish and chips lunch stop.
Then another hour and a half before we drove along mountainous 823-square mile Snowdonia National Park for a look of Snowdon peak from the Snowdon View Point.
A rare moment when almost all the cars pull in at the same time together:
We then weaved towards a scenic lake at Llyn Padarn:
And here we finally had all 4 cars unite for 16 of us to finally get together and take in the views. From singing happy birthday to Yutong from September’s yacht week monsoon, doing a litle yoga, stretching, and just being so wholesome here at this lake is all the feels I needed:
Finally, we retired back to our next base of operations in Caernarfon about a 15 minutes drive from the lake, capping off about 5 hours of driving for the day.
Our living situation there turned out better than I thought — our overflow AirBnb that originally said they could fit 6, but then told me they could only accommodate 3, which would’ve left 3 people without beds. But just before I could panic, the main bunkhouse who said they could originally fit only 12 actually said we could fit up to 18 with my reservation (by opening up their attic family room).
What?! Both was announced to me literally AT THE SAME TIME without knowing about the other. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
And then we headed to the local Weatherspoon for the local-est of local pub fare experiences (which made Nishant really really happy)
Now we stargaze and spill tea with drinking games in the attic of our bunkhouse at Ty Glyndwr:
