Oh Anglesey!

Good Morning, it’s a new week and the sun is forecast to shine all week! 😄

On Friday, a restorative visit to the beach was required!

As a family, our favourite bolt hole is Anglesey in North Wales, so that’s where we headed with a picnic packed. When we arrived just before lunchtime, the sky was the same grey colour that we had left on the Wirral, but it would take more than that to deter us.

Our first stop was beautiful Aberffraw beach. It was quite busy for a week day and there seemed to be an abundance of black labs, much to Jack’s delight. We walked for about an hour, over the sand dunes and across the beach.

We then made our way toward Rhosneigr but found a deserted beach en route. I have tried to find out what it is called but I think it is just one of those small beaches typical of the area.

We pulled into the tiny parking area and set up base camp. Lunch consisted of the usual picnic fayre and a little barbecue of Quorn sausages. It was delicious.

We stayed around for an hour or two just hanging out, reading, listening to music, exploring the caves and snacking!

Jack was delighted with having so much freedom.

The only issue with deserted beaches is there are usually no facilities, so when it got a bit chilly and nobody could hold on any longer 😉,  we packed up and headed to Beaumaris.

Beaumaris has a little high street with lots of coloured buildings and a castle at the end. There are many small independent shops like; a sweet shop, a florist selling lots of garden plants, bookshops and a massive kitchen ware shop.

We admired the view of the Menai Straits and Snowdonia before heading home.

It was a great day and just what was needed to recover from a rough week. We were able to put things back into perspective and prepare for Himself’s birthday on Saturday.

Have a lovely day!

  2. Oh this brought tears to my eyes. I lived on Anglesey for a year after uni (went to Bangor) and I loved it! We lived in Beaumaris just near the church, so lovely seeing the high street again. My family live there (my mums side). xxx

  3. Cable Bay? And Aberffraw may well be my favourite place in the whole world. And don’t forget the Janet Bell Gallery in Beaumaris, and the fabulous ice-cream shop. Lisa, you have set me hankering now… x
