'Llanfair-pg', Beaches and Pete's Eats...

Weekends are getting a little booked up at the moment. It must be something to do with a little get together we are having at the end of March?

With this in mind we set the alarms for 07:30 on a Sunday morning and headed out to North Wales to get some fresh air and space. First stop was the World Famous Welsh Village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. No that is not me having a little fit whilst typing, it is a little village on Anglesey. Nothing much there of course, just a railway station and a row of shops. Rumour has it an American came up with the name anyway!

The grand plan was the walk from the Village of Newborough to Llanddwyn Island ( an area I have sailed and sea kayaked around ). However, with the lack of facilities in Newborough we parked in the forest and just spent more time out walking along the beach and sand dunes.

Unfortunately the tide and prevailing wind prevented us from getting onto the Island ( the little spit of sand joining it to mainland was under water ), so we will have to go back there another day.

With red windblown faces we headed to the legendary climbers cafe in Llanberis called Pete's Eats. Without a doubt this is the best cup of tea you will ever taste. Maybe it is the oversize mugs, maybe it is the location ( at the base of Snowdon ), either way this is one of those places I have been going to for years and will be going back for years to come. Just a pity the old 'Outside' outdoor equipment store has closed down as that was a good store during my uni years.
