Seals?
There are lots of advantages to living on the Lleyn Peninsular. One of them is having such fantastic scenery and wildlife on our doorstep.
Karen and I have just got back from a walk along the cliff tops from Edern towards Tudweliog. My pedometer showed that we did just a tad over three miles.
We went deliberately to have a look at the seals and we weren't disappointed. We saw well over thirty. with quite a few hauled out of the water. Here are some photos that we took of the seals that we saw, I hope that you enjoy them

Very nice, Bodger and very chilly looking.  
Although I live by the sea I can't say that seals visit us on a regular basis because I've never photographed them locally.

When I saw the topic title I saw these in my mind's eye ........

Nice to see them so close

They do seem to pick the most uncomfortable looking beaches to sprawl out upon though, don't they ?

Bodger, I don't think I've walked along there. Where do you start from?

Go to the now defunct post office in Edern and turn right. Go along there for about half a mile and on the left, there's a lay by. Park your car there and go up the road to an unmade lane on the right. Go down that to the cliff tops and turn left. Walk for a mile and you'll see the seals OR make arrangements and Karen and I will take you there but bring some waterproof shoes, its a bit muddy in places.
