We took the ferry from Dublin to Holyhead, Wales on the weekend. We arrived in a lovely Victorian seaside resort town, Llandudno in Wales. This city has a lovely crescent shaped bay and is located in North Wales. There are a group of pastel colored guest homes that face the ocean. We stayed in one of these the Grafton bed and breakfast. We had a lovely ocean front room; the one right above the door in this picture. The hosts Laurie and Paul where exceptional in the gracious help.We would highly recommend their establishment if you are ever in Llandudno,Wales.
We rode the hop on bus to Conwy to see the famous Conwy Castle that was built in 4 years by King Edward I in 1283. He was a ruthless king who wanted to keep down the Welsh people with castles like this one. Wikipedia says, “It is considered that Conwy is one of “the finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe”, and it is classed as a World Hertiage Site.” There was a lot to explore in the castle ruins and the town itself. It was also David’s birthday so we had dinner at a lovely hotel facing the beach. The next morning it was good bye Wales.And four trains later; hello Stratford on Avon. And hello to sweet Enzo our new pet to take care of here in Stratford. He is a sweet and loving boy who is a joy to walk and play with. This will be a lovely sit as we are near the old town and lots of Shakespeare historical sites.
