This Easter we spent a lovely long weekend in Anglesey. It was made even more special with my Mum and Dad, Brother Paul and his wife Jackie coming across to see us on the Easter Saturday. We all spent a wonderful family day together walking along the rugged spectacular cliffs near South Stack Light House and Holy Head Mountain. The day was rounded off with a tasty Chinese take-away in Menia Bridge.
All weekend the weather was glorious, in fact it just kept getting better each day. The days started off mild but the last day was positively warm and way above average for the time of the year. There was plenty of lovely sunshine which always puts a smile on anyone’s face and we also experienced seeing so of the magical sea mists that sometimes hang around the cost of Anglesey at this time of the year.
The terrain in Beaumaris near where we were staying in Anglesey is very hilly and much like the course of the Windermere marathon so made for good training and preparation for the up and coming 10 marathons in 10 days which is now less than a month way. Over the weekend I have managed lots of good hilly running and at pace, which was only interrupted to take a few photos. There is now only a couple of weeks training left and then it is taper time for the start of the 10in10 on the 8th May, it’ll soon be here now!
I think the scenery in this corner of Wales is absolutely stunning at this time of the year so I took my camera with me were ever I went, even on most of my runs to capture its beauty, which was made even more special with the sunshine and mysterious mists. Below are a few images to share with you.
