Welsh Boundary Walk - Criccieth to Llanbedrog

Saturday 30th April- day 11
When I arrived at last night's site an elderly gent told me to pitch where I wanted and a lady would come round and collect the fee. This didn't happen, and at 7:45am this morning I was reluctant to knock on the door, so I am sorry to say I left without paying.
A twenty minute walk took me back down to Criccieth. The cafe did not open until 9:00 so remembering the benefit of a free night I went into the posh Lion Hotel and had a posh £10 breakfast - excellent!
Six hours of more or less non stop mixed coastal and inland walking took me to Pwlleli . There was a huge fleet of dinghies racing in the bay (420s I was told). In the town I had scones and tea and marched on to this site in Llanbedrog. Once again a "brown sign" indicated camping which turned out to be erroneous. The lady told me they only had a licence for caravans and the council wanted £600 to change the sign. However I was alowed to camp. Next to me in a caravan is a family and the son has completed the D of E Gold Award and also has his own web site (disguised as a blog) where his subject Iis photography of urban subjects -
We had good conversation about computers etc. And I will be looking at his site when I get back. He reckons Orange now provide better coverage than Vodafone for people with outdoor interests.
There is a pub in the village so I'm off to see if I can eat there.
