we set off friday and stopped in our travelodge on the way to Anglesey. We had a cottage falling of the top of wales! We were really lucky as the weather for all but one day was sunny, though there was a fair old breeze! We had some stunning views from walks
The crazy girls did some swimming - in wetsuits and the shrouded in towels with hot choc to warm up!
visited the local bijou museum, which was excellent. the kids trail was
fine, and helped the kids navigate nicely the museum, and we were the
only ones in there. it also had a very good cafe ;) and an art
went to some prehistoric sites - very important for our history of
britain through the ages project! These included burial mounds and iron
age round houses. Very evocative and fabulous views.
did do some home ed whilst we were away. All girls finished the
prehistory to end of iron age - now we just have to add visits we have
done, and leave some pages empty before starting... the romans! FrB and
BB also did some English work, and FrB brought her recorder - ermmm did
we leave it there?? A fair bit of colouring and lots of animal crossing
There was a lot of picnics in the boot of the car and cafe stops. FrB had her first cream tea.
We visited 2 castles - Beaumaris and Penrhyn both beautiful in different ways and at polar ends of castle history!
the way home we went to Great Orme ancient copper mines. These were
fab! I thought I was very brave going in the caves as not my favourite
things! However it is wonderful walking in such ancient places, and the
cavern was awesome.
geocached a bit and placed and picked up a travelbug. we hugged,
laughed and had a wonderful time :) . Going to end this post on 2 fab
