A very quiet Abersoch outer harbour is the subject of this week's photo from John. Normally there would be more boats moored here, but these are not normal times. Hopefully, better times will be just around the corner.

Phill Boyd is this week's photographer and the week has seen some really fine weather, with the wind dropping out at times to bring some idyllic conditions to the bay. Obviously this has been a difficult week for everybody as the coronavirus restrictions have come into effect, however, the weather has helped lift some of the gloom. Phill captured this sunrise shot from the sand dunes on Abersoch main beach.

Alot can change in a week and, since the last photo update, the measures to fight Covid 19 have come into effect, bringing a period of great uncertainty. One certainty is that the crew of Abersoch Lifeboat will still be able to respond to emergencies and John captured this shot of the lifeboat returning from service and crossing the Afon Soch at low tide on Friday afternoon.

Another beach hut photo from John this week. This one is from much further up the beach, near to the Lon Golff slipway and shows a very high spring tide. The high tide combined with some swell pushing up into Cardigan Bay resulting in an enhanced tide. This can cause some issues, as was the case a few winter's ago, however, this one did not coincide with a major storm surge.

The photo was taken on 11/03/2020 and it was uploaded on this page on 15/03/2020.

Pen Llyn has seen another storm this weekend, however, there were some photo opportunities for John since the last upload and he captured this wonderful shot during the week.

The waves of Porth Neigwl, viewed from the Rhiw end of the bay, is this week's photo from John. It has been a stormy winter and the soft cliffs of this beach have been getting a pounding. The sea has also brought in huge amounts of plastic waste, which appears to be a growing problem around our coastline.

The photo was taken on 20/02/2020 and it was uploaded on this page on 22/02/2020.

There has been alot of low cloud and fog affecting the Pen Llyn area over the last few days, which has limited opportunities for photography.

After the rain and gales, a quieter and colder spell has coincided with the weekend, which is always welcome at this time of year. This shot is looking across the area of marshland that is near to the golf course, with the old lifeboat station on Penrhyn Du in the background. Part of St. Tudwal's East Island can also be seen. Will this fine weather last? Keep an eye on our weather page to find out...

Phill Boyd is standing in for John again this week and has sent in this great photo of some rather hefty surf at one of the local Pen Llyn surf beaches. Phill is a keen surfer himself and also has a growing reputation as a surf photographer, with many of his photos now appearing in the British surf magazines. If you look closely at this photo, you can see the surfers in the water.
