This morning, we drove to Cemaes, the most northerly village in Wales. After paying for parking and receiving the ‘biggest car park ticket in the world’ we hiked along to Wylfa Head to the edge of Cemaes Bay. The weather was freezing cold, windy, overcast and at times showery. It was a beautiful, peaceful walk to start the day even though the local dogs, hares, cows and sheep didn’t appreciate our company.
We then drove to Bangor across Pont Britannia Bridge route, not the Menai Bridge built in the 1850’s, so we didn’t have to pull the side mirrors in as we had plenty of room. We drove to Garth Pier, one of Britain’s longest pleasure piers which stretches into the Menai Strait – most of the way to Anglesey through the town centre. It has ornate kiosks scattered along its length and a tearoom at the very end. It is very hard to walk along now as the start of the pier is under reconstruction.
Our destination for the day was Porthmadog, a very busy little town where camped at Tyddyn Llwyn Camping site.
