29th August 2009 : Saturday Penrhyn Castle again

We woke to find it was cooler today, after overnight rain.
The site wardens were holding a Bring and Buy sale outside the offfice, in aid of the "MacMillan Cancer nurses." so we contributed some video DVD's and books on our way out.
Pat wanted to revisit Penrhyn Castle as the gift shop and garden held something she wanted to see, so after briefly shopping in LLangefni we crossed the Brittania Bridge and arrived there shortly after it opened at 10:00 AM.
To our surprise the traffic was very light and we had no delays on our journey.

As before we went straight to the walled garden and enjoyed the flowers and took quite a few photos of the wide variety of flowers and even flowering sub-tropical trees

We got back to the gift shop, but Pat couldn't find what she was looking for, but nevermind, we had a rather nice cooked lunch in the restaurant before I walked down to the car park and brought ithe car backto the castle as Pat was having trouble with her arthritis.
We had a leisurely ride back to camp to find that the bring and buy sale was still underway, so we bought some more paperback books and retired to the caravan with the intention of going out later on.
This plan was scotched by the weather, as it rained, then later when it cleared up we were just too lazy to go out again!
