Day 067 : Pen-y-groesion – Menai Bridge

By pure coincidence I meet up with an old friend, as I walk down a narrow road towards Dinlle Dinas. Dennis and Rose had been camping there and had packed up and were making there way home. It was a pleasant surprise meeting them we stood by the side of the road chatting for about half an hour.


Dinlle Dinas is a popular seaside area especially with campers and caravanners. There are good views of Anglesea and back along the coast to the Llyn peninsula.

This headland also has Caernarfon Airport which is used by smaller aircraft and helicopters. Its license only allows for day time flying. I also think search and rescue operations go on from here.


I walk inland around a muddy inlet of Foryd Bay called the Foryd Nature Reserve. Which has a diverse amount of sediments and birds. The windy route eventually brought me back to some windy roads and back to the coast. I got plenty of views across the straits of Anglesea and a few boats going up and down.


Caernarfon sits at the mouth of the River Seiont guarded over by the castle.  The castle is dominated by its polygonal towers and makes an impressive site. It is also classed as a World Heritage site. I take my lunch just by the mouth of the river before walking along the coast by the city walls and through the marina.
