On our way into Wales Sarah and I drive through many miles of the brutal ‘we’ve broken the sky’ kind of rainfall we get too often in these climate-changing days. But we keep going because, well, it’s a day out, an adventure and we’re determined to enjoy it.Besides, we’ve been where we’re going many times before, though not for a long time now, and we know it can have good weather even when it’s raining everywhere else. That’s how it is with Paradise.
Across the bridge then to Anglesey and two left turns later we arrive at Niwbwrch. Where we turn left again, through the pine woods and down to the beach.
Well done that mountain range.
The first time I walked out onto the beach several years ago it took my breath away with its unexpected beauty. It still does, every time. And it’s not always sunny here. Of course it isn’t. We once stood here in a high wind and watched a black cloud and its wall of rain detach itself from Snowdonia and cross to here in a very few seconds.
A hilly tidal island that’s briefly cut off twice every day. Not very cut off though as there’s a very small gap between the land and the island.
Lunch eaten we walk up onto the hilly island.
And if you’re reading this in Liverpool it would take you two hours and just a couple of miles of walking to get here.Next we walk down onto the far side of the island.Good for seaweed and rock pools.
We often used to come camping here, so always come back for a visit. Plus, there’s been a lot of walking since that picnic lunch and we’re hungry!
