I thought I’d share some of the pictures and information about our mini adventure.
We went to Trefor and stayed in an amazing little rented cottage as a base, and then explored a lot of the amazingly gorgeous north Welsh coastline. If you get the chance, do it.
As for me, I spent a lot of time thinking about what the last few years have brought me – how ill I’ve been, and the reality of that, and that I need to really start working towards the things that are most important to me. I’ve got everything I need to make my life work out the way I want it to, I just need to apply myself. And that’s ok too. I know what I’m doing now though – writing is something that’s really important to me, I just need to reframe this to suit what I really want.
Anyway. Here are some of what I thought were the best photos I took while I was gone, and you’ll see more in the coming weeks and months as I sort them into galleries.
This is Traeth Trefor, Traeth Criccieth, Castle Conwy, Castle Criccieth, Nefyn, Abersoch, Trefor mine (in the background – we started referring to it as Helm’s Deep – turns out it’s a granite mine and quarry). We also went to Pwllheli several times. And the photos don’t do the places any justice – if you get the chance, go visit.
Oh, and try not to be too shocked, but there are photos of me in here too!
(Traeth btw means beach).

Which one’s your favourite? I’ve got nearly 1000 of them all told, so this is just a selection, but I’d love to hear which you liked the best!
D Kai Wilson- Viola is a prolific and often intensely fun writer. Her favorite genres are Sci-Fi, where her Darkness series is set, Fantasy, where she writes up actual play from RPGs she never got to run, urban fantasy, mostly inspired by her bad idea bear (aka her partner, Tempus, and mental health advocacy, as she’s got a raft of diagnoses, none of them particularly pleasant, but none that tend to hold her down for long either
When not writing, and still *thinking* about writing often enough to get caught out, Kai can be found training with her beloved at the Ludosport Academy they belong to, hanging out with family and friends gaming, or enjoying exploring parts of the world they’ve got access to at the time.
A nature and animal lover, Kai is a writer because she has to, because she loves it, and because it’s fun. She is the mother of two cats, two adults and lives in the Cotswolds, UK, with her beloved.
