At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

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.
