||This is a view of the beach near town. Barmouth beach stretches two miles from the harbour. The sand is smooth and soft and a
promenade extends the entire length of the beach. The tide covers the beach at full flood,
and retreats about half a mile when at full ebb. Barmouth is renowned for its beach and
deserves a good reputation. When I was a boy growing up in Barmouth, Frank Goodchild, who
was a member of the coastguard at the time, used to fish from the beach and everytime I
was with him he had caught at least two sea bass. Soft-shell crab seemed to be the magic bait,
but only Frank could land the fish - he had the touch.
