We had a lazy morning on our first whole day in North Wales, sitting at the camp site drinking tea, starring at the Mountains and attempting to cook breakfast. It was so cold the gas canisters just weren't working - so the little hot water bottle came to the rescue and lashings of tin foil to cocoon the hob. We got there in the end. There really is something about cooking and eating outside.
Our first port of call was to get a proper view of Snowdon - so off back across Pen-y-Pass and we were greated with this glorious, glorious view. It's officially the highest mountain I have ever seen. The thing I like most about it is that Snowdon in Old English means Snow Hill - it certainly was that!
Our next stop was Anglesey - seeing as it was our first day of holiday we thought it would be in the spirit of ease and laziness and somewhat fun to take in the Island by driving all the way around it. It was a route of about 70 miles and we made stops along the way such as Moelfre, Amlwch, Cemaes Bay and Aberffraw. Angelsey really is the most diverse landscape - Mountains, Cliffs, Beaches, Marshes, Coastal Heath and Forests. I am glad we took the drive just to take in as much as possible and it turned out to be a bit of a recce for the rest of our week.
We had a long walk at South Stack Cliffs, an RSPB reserve which is the most beautiful Cliff and Heathland Seascape. We ambled slowly around the landscape, slowly getting higher and higher. It was so peaceful and quite warm out of the wind. There were Seabirds crammed on the narrow ledges and we sat for sometime nestled in the rocks watching the waves.
The day ended with a beautiful sunset and a plan to return to Anglesey to see the Sun set over the Sea.
