Ynys Mon. Four glorious days on Angelsey.

Just enjoyed a hot and sunny break on Angelsey with the Kamper and caravan. The picture above shows a delightful fishing boat near to The Ship Inn ,Red Wharf Bay. As a child , I stayed at the now demolished, Min Y Don Hotel. In Welsh , Min Y Don, I believe, means “the edge of the waves” and indeed the sea lapped at the Hotel walls on stormy days.DCFC0003.JPG
The Kamper is shown parked up at Newborough Forest on the South West corner of Ynys Mon. This is a MUST SEE place to visit if you get to Angelsey. Normally a fee has to be paid to access the extensive forest, but when we visited the machine was out of order and we had free entry. A fairly long drive through the pines on smooth tarmac leads down to the car parks adjacent to a wonderful sandy beach. There are views over the straits to the mainland. You can walk, cycle or enjoy the beach and sea. A couple of energetic and skilful guys were windsurfing using kites. At times they were flying above the waves. Dogs are allowed on the West end of the beach. It was great to see families enjoying the place. Some were using the barbeque areas.

One day we toured the beaches and bays by following the A5025 and darting off as we felt. The picture above is Moelfre, one of my favourites. A new Life Boat and Station under construction. Lots of life saving history here. We also saw Amlwch Port, Wylfa Nuclear Power Station, Bull Bay and Church Bay. The views and birdlife on South Stack, Holyhead are another must see.
