Anglesey, Land of Myth & Legend
Just had an eventful week at Ty Woods cottage at Rhoscolyn, Anglesey, my first trip to this island since 1975 when we only got as far as Llanfairpwyllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwillantysillogogogoch and then came home again.
Of course, the new member of our household, Gertie the 6 month old Border Terrier, came with us and loved it, especially the nearby beach that we made full use of, but she did worry us one night when she went missing in the dark for 30 minutes before, thankfully, we found her.
I had several objectives for visits with my camera whilst we were away and being blessed with fantastic weather for most of the week I managed to visit two of the three objectives I had in mind. South Stack lighthouse was the first place we visited and were lucky enough to find a beautiful sunset whilst there. Next was a drive over to the east of the island and Newborough where we parked and walked along Llanddwyn Beach to the island that Twr Mawr (an obsolete lighthouse) and a host of other edifices stands on. Again we were lucky with the weather and on the mile and a half walk back along the beach we were treated to a sunset the equal to or even better than we saw earlier this year at Dunedin, New Zealand.
We very much enjoyed our stay and will most certainly be back there for another visit soon.
