Day 59 mile 59: Conwy & Castle

ewDay 59 mile 59: Conwy & Castle. It is a crisp morning with snow/frost on the mountains and an awful weather forecast ahead, so I took a quick dash around the town of Conwy while I had the chance. It is an astounding place, boasting a c13th castle, intact town walls and a truly unique atmosphere of independence and fun. In the hight of summer it can be understandably really busy, but this early in the morning I seem to be sharing it only with a couple of dog walkers and the omnipresent sea gulls. Having been around a route that basically looped around the insides of the walls I took a few moments of solitude to snap some pictures on the quay, for once without having to dodge around vast numbers of tourists enjoying their holidays.

As I sit and type this I can hear the hail stones bouncing off the windows… well timed me!

And one silly one with the Smallest House in Great Britain…

A song that looped in my head, and works well in a town like this were history is measured more in millennia than years or decades 🙂

 

Many thanks as ever for all the support!
