Wicked Welsh Weekend: Anglesey and Snowdonia

Note to self: when going away over a UK Bank Holiday weekend, start planning more than a few hours in advance. Hotels will book up, and sleeping in the car is highly uncomfortable. Also, get an app for tide times..

Similar to my Lake District escape earlier in the year, this short trip up to Anglesey, a beautiful peninsula in North Wales, happened without much prior planning. All I knew was that I wanted to photograph the lighthouse at Penmon Point at sunrise, and the Twr Mawr lighthouse at sunset. Both were very successful photo locations by the way, and I even had some time to find the lonely tree of Llanberis near the foot of Mount Snowdon, take a little drive around Snowdonia, and visit the village with the longest name (Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch). Next time I think I may do a little more planning, and maybe also go a little longer than just 24 hours.
