We are visiting friends who live on the beautiful Island of Anglesey and the weather has again been warm and sunny. Today's day out of choice was to Niwbwrch, (Newborough) Beach, one of the very few places we haven't already been to here, as both Margaret and I both made regular holiday visits here with our parents as children. We had a picnic lunch on one of the provided benches set around the area.
With the tide out the beach was huge, and as you walk from the car park there is signage that states dogs are allowed to the left, but the right is reserved for those who prefer a dog free environment.
A walk of several miles of coastline is possible, with the ability to turn right into the forest at any time, where the gravel tracks can be followed to make an easy return to the car parking area possible.
This is a conservation area where a colony of red squirrels has been introduced and are now thriving. Also there are large colonies of ravens, and it is from this area that the ravens are taken to replenish those at the Tower of London.
This has been a very pleasant day, and Anglesey remains one of our favourite places, which hasn't changed too much from the memories of our childhood. The whole area seems to have escaped the modern tendency to overdevelop UK tourist spots, and we like that. Don't tell anyone.
