The most technically perfect, medieval castle.....

... me, this is a sad castle because it had such great potential to be perfect for its purpose and yet never got to prove itself.
It is known as the history teacher's fantasy castle with its 13th century classic proportions and perfect symmetry - sigh!

A bit tired in the morning, our early waking meant we got an early start on our drive further North, to Conwy (near Bangor) to see the castle.

Beth and I woke to a slightly cooler, but still glorious day. We had some breakfast and then decided to head to Jane Austen's house, which is beautifully preserved in the village next to Beth's. We walked through her entire house and garden, saw the desk where she used to write, the drawings that belonged her her only sister, and some items belonging to her five brothers.
