Penmon was one of these places I knew I really should go. People said it was beautiful! I had never got around to it, but then it was a sunny Sunday and I decided to do my weekend run there. And so I did! I parked at a lay-by right at the sea front, and from there ran to the old priory, the local well, the lighthouse (well, not all the way, as it stands in the sea), and the nearby limestone quarry. From there I ran back. It was all very agreeable indeed!

This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
