A free day.

We don't often get a free day when neither of us has something on.The weather here is glorious at the moment,really sunny and hot.So it was off to Conway(on the North Wales coast).We decided to walk the walls and from there you get a great view of Conway castle.It was completed in 1287 by Edward 1 to keep out the Welsh .It was only in the mid 1400's that the Welsh were allowed to live in the town.

Another great view from the walls.After we had walked the walls we visited the Royal Cambrian Art gallery which had an interesting exhibition by five different artists.We always have to take in art gallery if there is the opportunity.

From there we got back in the car and went round to the Marina to have lunch at the Mulberry pub.It was here during the Second World War that hundreds of men were employed in building the Mulberry harbours.These giant piers were then towed across the English Channel and saved many lives by acting as a vital landing point for men and supplies during the D-Day landings.
From the end of the marina you can see across to Deganwy(above) and looking the other way the edge of Snowdonia.

It was a lovely day out in glorious sunshine,such a bonus at this time 0f t the year.


  1. What a lovely free day you had! I always feel like I go on an adventure with you, thank you. Sxx

  2. How lucky you are to be able to make the most of this glorious weather!!!
    We're hoping it lasts till the weekend. Lovely photographs ... Conway is very impressive, isn't it!

  3. Thank you for the trip. I love anything about the UK - especially castles. We don't have any of those in the US, and the history... ours is quite short on that.

  4. The weather looks wonderful, as does Conway in the distance - a great place to spend a free day:)
