    Hi Quintin
    The stretch from Harlech onwards looks truly stunning- brilliant set of photographs. Tony and I still walking the SW Coast Path. I really enjoy following your progress.
    Best wishes

    • It’s really special – even walking feels too fast as there’s so much to see! Hope all goes well on the SWCP

    Must be the first time I have read about Portmeirion and no mention of what was filmed there – which is at it should be as it stands wonderfully on its own merit.
    Be seeing you.
