A few days in Wales ( Pic Heavy )

We have just spent a very pleasurable two days in Wales with Artis-Anne and her DH ,Tony .
It was just what the doctor ordered . It was so lovely to see them again , as we hadn't seen them since Woolfest . We set off early and went by way of Llandudno and as you can see the weather , in the words of Pa Larkin in The Darling Buds of May , was Perrfick .
Blue skies all round
A clear view of Great Orme
There was even a yacht race to watch as we ate our lunch.
Little Orme at the other end of the prom .
This was the only seagull on the Prom and we named him Poirot as he had the same mincing walk as the great detective .
We reached Annie and Tony's just after one and got a great welcome.
This is Tony with all the dogs who are keen to get his toast .
Annie doing what she loves best .
Isla and Skye , Meg's new friends .
Annie and Tony took us on some fabulous walks . It was great getting out in the fresh air for a change . Luckily the weather held all the time we were there .
Little boats in the bay .
" See That "
Lovely Welsh mountains .
Row of stone cottages.
The river was full as it crashed over the waterfall.
We had a great time with them and was a real treat after the past few horrible weeks we've had.
Annie is a fabulous cook and made sure we were stuffed full :0)
It was two days spent in very pleasurable and comfortable company and came to an end all to soon . We've promised to go back and it looks like we may spend our hols in Llandudno next year instead of the long journey down to Devon .
