We visited Anglesey Cemaes Bay and headed off to a different spot in the surrounding area each day. It is beautiful and we will definitely be returning one day, we did lots of coastal walking up and down hills and saw some picturesque seaside towns.
Cemaes Bay itself is worth a visit, it is small and quiet but has everything you need, on the beach is St Patricks's bell, legend has it that St Patrick was shipwrecked at Ynys Badrig where he founded his first church and the bell has been erected in honour of that.
This was our first day so the overcast one!
The next day we visited Breakwater country park, this was a wonderful place walks in different directions some of which were quite challenging. There was an outdoor gallery and that was interesting to look at.

I took loads of these so I feel I may bore you with them, let me know if you want to see more and I will put them in another post.
We also visited Treardurr Bay, this was much busier than where we stayed and with the baking sun you really could have been anywhere in Europe. It has a lovely stretch of beach and was full of families enjoying the weather.
Amlwch was the nearest small town with a supermarket and used to be a port where copper was exported all over the world.
Beaurmaris was beautiful with a pier and lots of pretty painted buildings, though I have to say we found that every where we went. There were certain parts of the beach where the dogs could go on so we let them have a little paddle but we are not sitting on the beach types, so not being able to access all of it was not a problem.
I don't know why but my dogs couldn't wait to get off here, it was as if they knew they were not on solid ground and no it wasn't too hot I checked with my hand. We had plenty of rests, drinks sat under tables (the dogs not us!) in the shade and we never stay out for a full day just a few hours here and there.
Our house that we stayed in had a hot tub and before we left I made this bikini, the yellow straps are recycled from an old one but the rest is made from bits of scuba from a dress I made. I just used an old bikini as a template.
Well that is all for now, my husband has more photos so I will share more in a different post if you are not already fed up of my holiday snaps. Back soon.
