Distance: 18.0 miles
Ascent: 399 metres
Duration: 5 hours 10 minutes

Walking out of season heightens the differences between landowners who care about walkers and those who consider us worthless riffraff. An early part of today's walk crossed through heath and gorse which had been especially cut back which regular poles pointing out the path. In contrast towards the end I found myself facing a seven foot high security fence where the public right of way should have been.

The Llŷn Coastal Path currently under construction is responsible for the former condition and will presumably eventually eradicate the latter. But even then natural obstacles will still appear, such as the flooded fields and eroding cliffs which marked the mid-section of today's walk.
