In the summer of 2009, Mrs H and I went on an ill-fated fortnight’s holiday in beautiful North Wales, basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth. Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series, this is the first time that I’ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme.

After abandoning our walk above Harlech, we returned to the cottage we were renting at Glandwr Mill, and got changed for what was intended to be our last afternoon meal out in Barmouth before returning home the following morning. Unfortunately for us, the driver of this Royal Mail van wasn’t paying attention on the road, and he crashed his van at high speed into our stationary car. Thankfully we walked away from the crash, but the accident left me with a long-term knee injury and a difficult battle both to get successful treatment and compensation for the crash and its consequences.
