A view across the famous links of Abersoch Golf Course this week from John, with the beach huts of Abersoch main beach also visible, as well as the chalets of The Warren / Tal Y Fan in the far distance. The grass on the links part of the course is fairly green at the moment, which is indicative of the very changeable weather this summer.

A view across the bay towards St. Tudwal's Islands on a blustery Abersoch day.

A view looking south across the bay towards Bwlchtocyn is this week's photo from John, with the popular Mickey's Boatyard beach cafe visible at the bottom of the photo. This end of Abersoch main beach is quieter than the northern end of the beach, however, it benefits from some good shelter when the wind is blowing from the southwest.
