Well, William and I are back from our weekend in Wales where we enjoyed the hospitality of  my wonderful sister-in-law, Brenda and her husband, Arthur.  The weather was unbelievably good; cold, crisp and dry with beautiful blue skies. We drove down on Friday night to make the most of the weekend. 

Benllech Bay, Anglesey

On Saturday morning after a leisurely breakfast we headed off to Anglesey.  This was my first proper visit.  Over the years I have travelled right across Anglesey several times making for Holyhead and the ferry over to Ireland but never have I actually been on the island for a proper visit.  Well, let me tell you.  I’ve been missing out on something.  Anglesey is beautiful! 

Benllech Bay, Anglesey

Our first stop was Benllech Bay.  It is a sight to behold, especially on a day like we had.  There were people around but for the most part it was deserted. We had a long walk on the beach and then made for a little cafe right at the far end in the picture above.

The view while we sipped our hot drinks was amazing.
Next up was Red Wharf Bay.  Just a short drive down country lanes from Benllech.

It’s a very picturesque little place full of little, old cottages and gorgeous houses.

Of course there’s a quaint little old pub too, The Ship Inn and should you be a little thirsty below is the view you’ll enjoy while you enjoy a pint or two.

The house above is in an idyllic spot.  I think I could live in that house very happily, couldn’t you?

On way to Beaumaris, Anglesey.

Leaving Red Wharf Bay behind Arthur suggested we call in at Beaumaris.  So we did, but not before we stopped along the way to take pictures of this fantastic view.  It’s looking over to mainland Wales and snow capped Snowdonia.  Makes your heart sing doesn’t it?
It’s getting late now so I’ll be back with Beaumaris and Llandudno tomorrow.
