Just got back from a few days working North from Cardigan upwards, finishing off out of Porthmadog yesterday....was blowing up quite nicely by midday when we came off the water, but what a shocker last night! Had convinced family to come camping (Morfa Bychan behind the dunes) for a few days when we finished....storm hit really hard at around 1am....they reckon it was gusting round 80 to 90mph .....corraled the tent with the Jeeps and tightened the guys....but all too much for it by 6.00am, when it gave up....hasty retreat back to a much calmer N Pembs...lots of boast damaged, motor cruiser broke loose in Porth damaged a lot of boats, sailing boat drifted aground...sunny again now apparently....although, I hear lots of homes around Anglesey are still without power....

Will be a while til I convince the wife to come camping again
