Travel Blogs from Caernarfon
Long day on the bike, and only got in as it was getting dark, and the scenery was breathtaking, so took the easy option for the night so I could catch up with the blog and book my zip wire.Dave at the beach hut is a really nice and helpful guy and cooks a mean breakfast.

He was a lovely gentlemen but the chin boop would have been much improved if his hands hadn't been covered in God knows what kind of sheep mess.
About mid-week we headed up on ...
... a sunny Sunday evening and people had probably been to the beaches. We hit Conwy in the late afternoon and looked around a bit. It is an amazing walled-in castle town, one of at least 8 castles built by Edward I in the late 1200's to clamp down on the Welsh rebellion, and people can still walk around much of the city on top of the walls.
