Day 4 of the walk: Pont Llinas to Red Wharf Bay, 15 miles approx

Day4: Thursday 8th August 2013

Psychologically, it was good to be heading ‘down’ the map, running South from the top right hand corner of the island. ┬áIt was also a relief to be on softer, smoother ground. Gill and the dogs accompanied me for the first mile or so:
