More holiday times,… I had a gap before heading north to Skye (this easter weekend) and with a good forecast, friends in a similar -after winter, pre summer rush period, I hoped I could scrape together a great week in North Wales. I did! And am now getting ready for my next vacation due to last until early June on the Isle of Skye!
There was Llanberis slate, Tremadog, Lleyn Peninsular Adventure, Road biking, Gogarth and Rhoscolyn DWS finished off with managing Ivy League without a rest this time once back in Kendal. Good times.

The Trefor Granite Quarry on the Lleyn Peninsular, though largely closed by the 1950’s it supplied the granite for the Curling stones in the 2002 Winter Olympics, was opened originally in the mid 19th century and exported granite via boat from the coast.
But waiting to be converted into a Villain’s lair…
