Hello all, been away for the last week staying in our favourite cottage in Anglesey. weather was lovely albeit a bit blustery over the weekend.
Bryn Tirion, tranquility

We unpacked and set off for the County Top of Holyhead Mountain, where we passed a War Memorial

And, of course, I had to check how the gang were doing without me in the Peak District, a lot quieter they said :lol:
Are you missing me ?

Trig point on a windy top, Holyhead behind me, there's an iron age settlement and a roman fort ruins here, how did they go on without Paramo :D

Sunday was a 7 miler through the Newborough Forest and along the beach towards the island of Llanddwyn from where we could see the snow capped tops of Snowdonia.

We visited the sea sculptured north west coast to a formation called Ynys y Fydlyn, here there were two large arches

The sheep were feeding on the beach, can remember seeing this happening on Restoration, was it the Isle of Lewis ?
If it's there, climb it !

Another nice walk was around the old coppermines of Parys Mountain, here the vast array of colours never seem to show up on the photos, nor does the massive size of the crater, some Dr.Who episodes were filmed here in the Jon Pertwee days.

Our last day was a walk amongst the giants of the Ogwen Valley, just recalling my last visit made my knee ache again, that was when we did, Tryfan, Glyder Fach, Glyder Fawr and back via Llyn Idwal, what a day, Bristly Ridge, Cannon Stone, Cantilever Stone, Castle of the Winds and Devil's Kitchen, ouch my knee :lol

Finally, couldn't leave out a photo of the superb South Stack lighthouse

Got home Friday so I could go out with the gang on Saturday, see next walk, thanks, take care, Sue :D
