... into built up areas and busy roads, we stopped at a some services and from their decided to keep going and head back home. Well,to my Dad;s. By 8pm we were back on familiar turf where we had a proper bed for the night with space to move...bliss. Our trip took 18 days and we travelled a total of 2114 miles and over all it has been brilliant with some fabulous sights along the way. We plan on having a week back with my Family before setting off again to ...
Back to Wales today to see Port Meirion. If anyone watched prisoner (the English one,many years ago) it was filmed there. It is a quaint place that is not what it seems, some of the buildings look quite huge but in realty it is just a facade.

We had a sea view room, overlooking the road and then straight out onto the water. Room was clean, modern and very well appointed.
