Crete Pilgrimage 2016 - Day 38
Wales - Anglesey, Llandudno and on to Liverpool
From Caernafon we drove north and crossed the Menai Strait on the Brittania Briege and continued on to Anglesey. From there we crossed over to Holy Island, through Holyhead and on to the remote point at South Stack. This is a favourite place to watch the seabirds, especially the guillimots as they fly back to their nests on the sheer cliffs.
We drove back across Anglesey, crossed the Menai Strait on the other bridge and headed for the to the seaside resort of Llandudno. It was crowded, as expected, so we continued on and drove round the Great Orme Head. My Great-great-grandfather wrote about visiting this place, and seeing huge flocks of seabirds over the Headland. After driving around the headland, paying the £2 toll for the priviledge, we continued on towards Liverpool. We were suprised by the long line of vehicles, queued up waiting to get into Llandudno. The town was already crowded, so I cannot imagine where they were all going. We escaped the crowds and drove through North Wales and under the Mersey to Liverpool
