    Default I'm back!!!

    As above!

    I had a week off work & at very short notice shot off to stay in my sister's van in Wales.

    It is in a stunning place called LLanbrynmair.

    I'll put some pics up soon, we're crackered at the moment as we went to the beach in "Dovey" today then drove home.

    The weather has been beautiful!!

    Glad you had a nice time Ian, Nice part of the country over there, Did you go over to Aberdovy, more so did you give your Vectra a blast round on the sand at Ynyslas.

    Thanks guys, it is a beautiful area.

    The vec performed superbly, it was refined, powerful & comfortable, even loaded up.

    It was nice to ease it round the twisty bits then pull hard onto the straights. Great fun & a change from traffic!!

    I was careful to keep to the speed limits though mainly for safety and the fact that there are loads of speed traps around.

    Cruise Control is flipping invaluable as its too easy to wander over the limit!

    The Pug has got a speed limiter as well as cruise. Never thought I'd use it, but went to visit my mum who lives in Hyde nr Manchester recently. The number of speed cameras in the area in unbelievable. It just makes the drive so much more relaxing using the limiter. Set the speed and no matter how much you push the pedal, it won't go any faster.

    Feels really weird though and it's not something I use on a regular basis.

    As promised guys, here are some shots around Llanbrynmair from the site my Sister's van is on.

    It's an absolutely beautiful area









    Here are some from Barmouth, I never get fed up of going there!





    Finally one of my Son Matthew at Aberdyfi. I love this pic, to me it sums up the best of being a kid, in the sun carefree after crabs.

    We caught some beauties! One large specimin pinched onto my finger. Swearwords were stifled I can tell you, I was trying to pull it off & my skin was stretching while it clamped harder! Little Plucker!!

    We put them all back by the water after & they scurried off into the sea lol
