After my visit to the secret garden it was time for lunch and there was only one place to go for that - Pete's Burger Bar at Penrhos coastal park. The car park was full when I got there, such is the popularity of the place, so I had to park right next to the burger van, but while I was waiting for my cheeseburger to be cooked a space became vacant so I got back in the van and nipped into it before anyone else got there. The cheeseburger and coffee were just as good as always, then to counteract all the calories I'd just consumed I took the dogs for a walk.
My initial route followed a path which ran parallel to the main road for quite a distance and it brought me out on a section of Penrhos beach which I hadn't been to before. I'd seen the beach from the far end on a previous occasion and wasn't terribly impressed, but viewed from this end it looked okay and was worth a photo. Following a section of the Anglesey Coastal Path took me past the old stone boat house which I discovered last year, past several little coves and bays and finally ended back at the car park.
The walk had been a good one and had taken over an hour, so added to the walk I'd taken to get to the secret garden I decided I'd gone far enough so would make my way back to the camp site via the coast road but stop briefly at a couple of places just for a few more photos. First was Cemaes where I got some shots of the main street, beach and harbour, then my second stop was further round the coast at Amlwch.
Back at the tent my evening was spent alternately reading and watching a dvd, then just before the daylight faded completely I took Sophie and Poppie for their bedtime walk round the site. Snuggled down in bed later on I thought back over the previous twelve hours and my visit to the secret garden; finding out about it and actually getting to it had been a bit of a nightmare, then finding it closed was certainly a disappointment, but thanks to the kind lady who let me look round I came away with some lovely photos and memories of a really special place.
