From My Travels
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
I have 100% of the rest of my life to live.
Today is a lovely sunny day – still not warm, but much more conducive to lifted spirits
We arrived in Dublin after a 31/2 hour journey in a really huge ferry boat.
Our first stop after leaving Wrexham in Wales was at Llangollen.
Everywhere we go it is 20p …2p. One place it was50p.

Here we saw colourful narrow boats that travel on the canals in many areas of the UK.. We encountered rain here again.
We visited a pretty little village with the strange name of Betswy- Co-ed
We visited shops and a very pretty park…. and this was where the sun made an appearance. Nigel bought a raincoat. So we knew this would be the time when the rain would disappear.
On the next part of our journey we encountered bike riders, high mountains. deep valleys, hikers, slate mining, and a large lake.This was the Snowdonia region of Wales. Mt. Snowdon is the highest peak.
And on to that town with the very long name with the weirdest meaning. It was very pretty also.
|The town with longest name and the weird meaning|
We crossed the Menai Strait to the Isle of Anglesey where Prince William flies a rescue helicopter. He and Kate have a home here. And down to the Port of Holyhead to catch our ferry to Ireland.
Tonight we are staying at Jurys Inn which is opposite Christchurch Cathedral -Anglican denomination. We have been out to look at the Cathedral (it is massive ) and post some postcards.
Our hotel room is very nice and inviting. We will be staying here for two nights, At 9pm. the sun is still shining brightly.
What was good today?
Visiting the place with the very long name and weird meaning.
