Hi Rena, that used to be our tent but I am too impatient to pack it away when the trips are over  lol so we gave it away to friends, they were meeting us there so we pitched it for them so nobody else could steal the area hahaha, we sleep in the van nowadays.

No empty tinnies on the table.  

Looks like a very nice and quiet place mate, just right for skinny dipping.

Border, there were plenty of empties the next morning    where the tent is there was a camper van the night before they had a couple of kiddies with them so we were on our best behaviour for 1 night haha.
There is (APPARENTLY) a naturist bit around the other side, but every time I try to investigate Jane drags me back  

Bodger, it is beautiful, funny thing is whilst we were looking out over the bay there we were saying how we like it over your side too haha, Aberdarron is a real favourite of ours.
Our late friend's sons both work on Shell Island so we thought we'd pop over there to see them for Solstice, but we are hankering for a visit back to Lyn Pyn'

haha, we really had to save the spaces, a few hours after I took that there was 4 tents, our van, a 7.5t truck, and a handfull of cars.
I had hoped to see sunrise on the longest day but me being me after a swim in the sea I lay in the sun without any protection and ended up with sunstroke.    and spent all evening and night shivering in bed, only waking up at about 9am.

I'm sure that we could find you a pitch somewhere and the bonus would be that we're selling cider for the next ten weekends.
