Not so young, and definitely not very fit, I love getting out in the sun and wind, and on the top of a hill somewhere. These are my walking stories. Well..... Mostly walking, there are few days out across the breadth of the UK thrown in too. Click on any picture to get a full screen size view.
The date to start our long weekend in Wales had finally arrived. So we started by not rushing, and after leisurely preparations and a steady 4 hour drive we arrived at the Travelodge in Caernarfon around 3 pm. Despite drowsiness from the journey, we were keen to get out and look round. Our hotel was just off Victoria Dock and overlooks the Menai Straits. We were just yards away from the walled town and Caernarfon Castle, so guess where we went?
Sadly, we didn't actually get to the castle until just gone 4, which didn't give us enough time to look round. We were just about the last ones to leave, but the guy in the ticket booth couldn't have been more helpful. He started by taking pictures of me and Peter (as you do), and then, when he found out that we hadn't had enough time to look round, provided us with a "re-admit" ticket so that we could go back,. Wonderful Welsh service.

After a quick change, we were back out for our evening meal in the nearby Cantonese and afterwards a short stroll around the little harbour to enjoy the beautiful sunset. A glorious start to our weekend break.
