North Wales: Part 1

We're back! And we have another excellent blog post for you . After a great time in Manchester Saturday morning, we drove about 2 hours to our rented cottage in Conwy. Conwy is a beautiful town in North Wales, on the coast of the Irish Sea. Saturday night, we met up with a lot of our family, including our cousins, at a Premier Inn pub. I wasn't feeling too hungry, so I had a salad, but Matthew had incredible Bangers and Mash, in a giant Yorkshire pudding. After that we went back to the cottage to go to sleep.

In the morning, we had a quick breakfast at home, before driving to Treaddur Bay. This was for the scattering of my Mom's brother David's ashes, with all of our family there. It was very sad, but also beautiful. Matthew and I read a Scouting prayer. Afterwards, we all got an ice cream and sat down by the beach for a while. After that, we had a very long and confusing drive back to Conwy for lunch. It was confusing because Bob's car said it was nearly out of gas when it wasn't, so that complicated things. The lunch restaurant was called the Mulberry. I had an amazing chicken tandoori sandwich, and Matthew had a vegetable pizza. We stayed after lunch to talk to Bob, before going back to the cottage, for a calm and quiet evening.

On Monday, we had a fairly late start, but once ready we headed out to Llandudno. We did a little looking around, before buying sandwiches at Marks & Spencer for a picnic lunch. That picnic lunch was atop the Great Orme, a huge rocky hill that juts out into the sea. From the top, you can see for miles, on a clear day like yesterday. After our picnic, we hiked around the Orme, seeing the sheep and getting some great pictures. Then Matthew and I played on one of the coolest playgrounds ever, while our parents had a cup of tea, before it was time to go. After a bit of rest at the cottage after our hike, we walked about 15 minutes to what was our favourite restaurant for a day, The Mulberry, where we had eaten lunch just a day prior. This time, our experience wasn't as good. The food was absolutely incredible, but we waited over an hour until it came! After that, it was time to head home to bed. Stay tuned!
