p01sk4wqClick on the photo to see Iolo Williams and Huw Jones’ trip from Trefor to Morfa Nefyn.  This programme inspired me to explore the same area.  In the following clip you can see how the character of this coastline can change under different weather conditions.  Our experience around Trefor had rougher water due to North Easterly force 4-5 winds.
