Newborough Beach, Anglesey

September 1st 2010.

The double peak in the distance is Snowdon.

Then we had lunch and then a swim in the Menai Straits.

Shh, don't tell anyone. My parents get exercised every time this place gets mentioned in a 'Best beaches in Britain, ' article. So the story is Wales is miserable cold and wet and the people all speak a weird language to annoy tourists.

My Dad used to come here as a child on a Sunday after church sometimes with his folks. Over the Menai Bridge and turn left. Beautiful sand and not much else. You have to drive through Forestry Commission land to get to the shore.

Wales; it's not always raining.

The forest is beautiful, prpvided one remembers to bring two one-pound coins for the barrier to allow one to drive through. I have spent many happy hours there when I had a Labrador.
I wonder what will happen, if, as suggested in today's Sunday Telegraph, the UK Government sells off the forests? Will the Welsh Assembly be able to stop that?
Have not been there for two years .
