Excellent day yesterday
We set off in Robyn's 206 with her, her intended and I along with all their luggage destined for Bangor. The little 206 gamely got us there with no fuss at all. Robyn drive most of the way and I was able to enjoy the stunning scenery along the North Wales coast. Shame some is lost as the A55 goes through a series of tunnels but never mind. I really enjoyed the tunnels too...
Robyn's driving was absolutely excellent
Once Robyn and Greg were happy and settled I met up with Paul (Citroenxm) and enjoyed a most delightful afternoon
Paul took me across the Menai Suspension bridge a couple of times and then a tour of Anglesey
A stunningly beautiful place indeed
Paul then took me to the location where he does his car work and has his collection of cars and spares stashed away. Very good indeed. I envy you Paul, having a place like that.
Then it was home courtesy of Arriva Trains Wales and Virgin Trains. I have to complement both companies for providing me a good comfy ride home in clean trains that were bang on time. The only downside was a lack of first class accommodation on the Arriva train between Bangor and Crewe but it wasn't very crowded so no worries. I was glad I went Virgin first though. There were only two other passengers in my coach and yet standard class was bursting at the seams...
I was disappointed the train ride between Bangor and the Welsh border was in darkness. I bet the views from the train are absolutely staggering.
I'm going back in the Spring for a few days to see the place properly...
Again, big thanks to Paul for your excellent hospitality; it was very much appreciated, you make a great cup of tea!!!
Today Robyn will be driving herself from Bangor to Aberyswyth.
