UPDATE: SECTION 4 AND 5 SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED!
The Anglesey Coastal Path challenge continues to delight all who take part in the walks. This time the format changed slightly as we planned to walk for 2 consecutive days.
Day one, Saturday 13th April, was a lovely sunny day as we set out on walk number 4 having enjoyed a breakfast at the Sea Shanty in Trearddur Bay. This walk goes past Porth Dafarch and climbs up towards the South Stack Lighthouse and over Holyhead mountain finishing up at the Holyhead Country Park. Total distance 9.5 miles. There was a well earned barbecue at the Pen y Bont campsite after the walk. Thanks to Olwen and Robyn for letting us organise that.
Day two was duller than the previous day, but no rain thankfully. Again we had breakfast at the Sea Shanty and then headed out to the Holyhead Country Park to make our way back to Four Mile Bridge. This part of the walk passes through Holyhead Port and round the headland to Penrhos Country Park and then over the cob towards Valley. A distance of 6.5 miles.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us on either of those walks and a special thank you to those who did the two days.
Walk 6 is now being planned and we hope to be able to do that during July.
