Easter Holiday - Day 3

Ann's birthday today!

..when we woke up around 7am, it was snowing.

I co-ordinated the family and we all clubbed together to her the top-of-the-range Tom Tom portable sat-nav.

Separately, I bought her a leather case and a docking station, so it can be charged outsde the car.

Nicki C bought her a beatiful necklace. So did Jane, plus a bracelet.

After brekky we headed for Caernarvon. Boy, it was cold!! The snow turned to rain and we arrived about 10.30. We took a flying visit round the castle and then headed for the nearest tea shoppe Ann did the postcards and we then headed for the centre of town.

12.00 Then, a shortish drive across the Britannia Bridge to Beaumaris Castle (English Heritage). It's still cold but the Sun is trying to break through.

12.55 We arrived at Plas Newyyd (means 'new place'). It was a great place - lived in 'til the 70s - It had long mural in the main room by Whistler. Fantastic! A view of the water outside showing loads of detail.

A great tea-shoppe too that doubled as a second-hand book-shop too.

14.30 On our way back now via the Menai Bridge. We stopped of in Betws-y-coed

..and then back to the to the Pub for a read and final meal there.

We travel back home tomorrow.
