Llandudno Day 2 Tour

A travel blog entry by lesandmerryl on Jun 28, 2015

Threatening to rain this morning as we set off but we had confidence that our luck with weather would hold :). We drove through the walled town of Conwy and saw the castle in it's estuary setting. We plan to visit there tomorrow. Judy drove us through the mountains to the Pontyscyllite Aquaduct. Unfortunately we couldn't see the mountains because of the mist and low-lying cloud,  and when we arrived at the aquaduct it actually rained, albeit lightly, and I ...

Then we travelled over the Menai Bridge to Anglesey and headed for Penmon, where there is a priory dating from the 14th century, but built on sacred sites from pagan Celt times. There we saw the holy well, a very peaceful ...

... in sections over a 3 year period. He never booked in advance and up until recently had carried a 'bivi bag' for emergencies. Of late his wife who stayed at home had decided he was too old for the bivi bag and had forbidden him to take it with him. We were not sure what he would do if the worst happened and he was unable to fin anywhere to stay. Somehow he ended up telling us about the impracticalities of shearing wet sheep! They need to be hot and ...
