That's what Ron read - and he was hooked. Back on the bus we got for the endless 20 miles (please tell me we won't do that again!) and then on another bus - only 30 more minutes. The saving grace was driving into the town of Beaumaris - it was like driving into a posh resort on the sea. A very long, tree-lined (on one side) boulevard right on the estuary.

Tonight's Britstop is a very nice hotel/inn, where we have parked under a tree to get out of the heat and enjoyed a couple of quiet drinks.
