Clearly I forgot to publish this, so it will be a bit of a photo dump of the last couple of days whilst we were in Wales !
Today there are gale force winds in Wales. So naturally we decided to go up a mountain. Where it was really exposed. And there was no where to get away from the wind. Classic idea!
The day after we went to Yyns Llanddwyn. This was a great little place to visit, and one of the highlights of the trip for me. Although nothing will beat the ship wrecked boats!
Some more from the brickworks…
And from South Stack lighthouse
Today we went to Dulas Bay, and Porth Wen. This was the trip we tried to do on Monday, but we didn’t manage to make it to either.
This time in order to prepare I was on Google Maps zoomed in at 100% plotting where to park for minimum walking.
First up was Dulas Bay. We got there as the tide was going in, so one of the abandoned boats was already in water. This left me with the one closer to the shore to play in. I took my boots off and got into my dress, and then into the water. Little had I thought about the crabs. I hate crabs. I was almost stood on a large number of crabs. I had a bit of a freak out, jumped for the shore, gathered myself together and tentatively got back into the water.
The tide was coming in pretty quickly, so we went back to the car (Which I had wondered if it were going to be in water, as the place to park wasn’t much higher than where the water was).
I then drove us to Porth Wen. We had tried to walk there on Monday, but we turned back as we weren’t sure how much farther away it was. This time though, I had found a closer parking spot, and it was a short 10 minute walk across farmers fields.
When we got to the end of the farmers fields, we had to walk down a steep mud path with heathers and weeds up above our heads. This was only a couple of minutes though, and then we were there.
Today the weather forecast said it would rain heavily all afternoon. As seems to be the theme of this holiday, the weather forecast was wrong. Anyway, we set out with getting back before the weather turned in mind.
Getting to South Stack was straight forward, about a 15 minute drive from where we are stopping.
It was quite quiet, which is just what I like. Sadly though, my lighter ran out whilst we were there and so I couldn’t set off my smoke bomb 😦
On the way back to the car, a random herd of goats appeared! Naturally this involved whipping my skirt on and getting amongst them 😉
Today was our first full day on Anglesey, and we set out to visit some bays on the opposite side of the island to where we are stopping.
I had wanted to visit Dulas Bay, but I was tired and it was late afternoon so we came home and had a nap. That will have to be a trip for another day.
This evening we had a nice enough sunset over the opposite side of the bay.
I like this house, it is a bit creepy!
