Mostly a grey, chilly and breezy day for us, with just a little glimmer of sunshine a couple of times in the afternoon. Undeterred (Poppydog is always undeterred so I have no choice really!) we drove to Llanfachraeth, parking up in this uninspiring village, we followed the coastal path for just over a mile and a half, as it traversed marsh and grazing land along the river banks to the sea. It was a little bleak the only highlights being, seeing a heron in full flight and this little sprinkle of wild daisies and dandelions.
Eventually we reached the sea – very different to yesterday’s sea!
Unsurprisingly we only saw another couple of dog walkers in the distance on the entire three hour walk. We walked along the quite pebbly Porth Penial Dowyn beach – Poppydog content to chase pebbles all the while.
At the end of the beach the footpath took us inland over the small headland with lovely views back over the beach we had just left and down onto Porth Penrhyn-Mawr.
Another sand, shingle and stony beach.
Here we took a break for a while sheltered from the breeze, enjoying a little slant of sunshine with views across to Holyhead.
Before taking an inland route back to the car. Not the most inspiring beaches we have visited but heyho cobwebs blown!
Two thoughts of the day:
Anglesey doesn’t appear to be the place to come if you like wandering around quint little villages or towns.
The beaches we visited today warn of freak waves with the car ferries departing or arriving – didn’t see one (ferry or wave) – how disappointing!
