The Smith Family adventure continues and for the rest of the holiday we were joined by my sister and brother in law. It was great to have them on the trip with us as any extra pair of hands give mine a rest when carrying Nathanael.
On day three of our trip we decided to visit Beaumaris Castle on the Isle of Anglesey. We were blessed with another fantastic day of weather and I was thoroughly sunburnt at the end of the day. You see I had done the Motherly duties of making sure all had used sun cream apart from myself. The thing about large sunglasses is that your eye area is well protected but your nose looks like Rudolph when the sun hits it! Thank goodness it has toned down now!
Beaumaris Castle is another castle built by our friend Kind Edward I he was big into construction, and Beaumaris Castle is also ranked among the World Heritage sites as a fine example of 13th and 14th Century architecture.
I always think its really neat to see castles with an original working moat where our ancestors would bring in produce and supplies via boats right up to the castle gates.
It also happens to be completely free if you hold life membership with the English Heritage, Tickets for an Adult are £5.25, and £15.75 for a family.
At the castle, again not furnished you can stroll around the grounds, enter a few rooms with displays and climb the interior and exterior walls. I think to appreciate the castle you need to pick a fine, dry day.
This also helps when climbing the castle walls which are paved with small, smooth, round stones so make sure to have appropriate footwear to avoid any accidents!
I wasn’t quite sure what the sign on the right was referring to, but I am sure it was a premonition of what was to come Day 5!
I have to say that this was one of my favourite places we visited in Wales, the location is simply breathtaking and we spent a good time just sat on the benches overlooking the bay staring at the beauty of it all.
As there are so many pictures from our wonderful day in Beaumaris, I have split them into two! Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what we got up to in the afternoon.
