Postcard From The Village

    There have been times when I've stayed at Portmeirion, in stormy weather, when it's rained so hard, for so long, that the streets have become rivers! But when the rain stops, the storm passes, the whole Village looks fresh and renewed.
   What's more I once made it over the the Island in the middle of the estuary. I was staying here in in July one year, several years ago now, and the tide hadn't turned for the whole week, which made it possible to walk out on the sand for almost as far as the eye could see, it was marvellous.

Be seeing you


  1. I often used to take advantage of the high tide and 'break into' the Village via each side of the headland to avoid paying the extortianate toll.

    Slightly ironic...

    1. Hi Steve,

      You wouldn't be the first to do that!
