Sunday 16th May 2010 Beaumaris and Red Wharf Bay

We had rain several times during the night, it was sunny first thing, then as we approached Beaumaris we could see the clouds building up over the mountains
We decided not to go round the castle this time and contented ourselves with taking pictures through the railings, this is of course two separate ones stitched together.
We spent some time watching this duck family as they swan around the moat and came ashore just in front of us.

Walking along the main street we came across this place up for sale, probably the oldest house on the market in the entire country at this time!
This notice over the door tells the story, looking inside we could see it was in surprisingly good condition and looked as if it had been well cared for by previous owners
We looked around for somewhere to have a light lunch and found an ideal spot in the most unlikely of premises, Triple 8 coffee shop is in an old Wesleyan Chapel. They do very fine scones with jam or cream
Here is Pat tucking in to one! and this after a bowl of rather special soup, Pat's was Celery and Cashew Nut, mine Tomato, they were served with a hot home made brown roll and delicious!We then feeling rather full, headed Penmon, then uphill towards Llangoed , this is the view looking back towards the mainland

Then via very narrow and hilly roads to Red Wharf Bay, dropping down a truly magnificent hill, we stopped part way down to take first this distant view of the bay,
And this 300mm telephoto shot from the same shot, it had been another great day out!
