The Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn in Welsh) is situated off the north-west coast of Wales near the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range. It is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait. Anglesey was known as Mam Cymru ('Mother of Wales') during the middle ages because its fertile fields formed the breadbasket for the north of Wales. http://www.anglesey-history.co.uk/
Only daughter was due to run a coastal race in Anglesey, so what a good excuse for the family to take a weekend off and join her. Newborough forest is one of our favourite spots because pup loves to run off lead their. My favourite because on one side you have the forest and the other side you have the sea
We had fun walking, playing, painting, and discovering
On the way home we decided to drive via Snowdonia, definitely need to spend some more quality time there over the summer.
Behold the sweeping valleysWhere the heathered slopes do lie,
With rugged peaks that reach
Unto the ever-changing sky.... Andrew Blakemore
