June 1, 2016. From Beaumaris we did a zoomer to Amlwch and a semi-zoomer to Trearddur where weÂ stopped at South Stacks which doubled as aÂ bird sanctuary . (Map at bottom)
Clifftops covered with drifts of pink Sea Thrift flowers at Holyhead South Stack on the Isle of Anglesey, Wales. Looking lanugo the cliffs at the sea untried water.Â
Lighthouse at Holyhead South Stack. There was an ticket tuition of Â£5 per person to go lanugo some 400 stairs to see the lighthouse up close. Then of undertow you would have to go when up the 400 stairs – the Â£5 tuition did not include an elevator!

A woman told me these were nesting Kittiwakes but they squint increasingly like Fulmars to me. Everyone had pretty fancy cameras with huge lenses but plane with my little point ‘n shoot I managed to get this image. “I got them”, I exclaimed as I proudly showed off my screen to the somewhat unimaginable bird fancier next to me. “You did!” he said in surprise. Actually, it looked a lot largest on the tiny screen of my camera than it does squandered up.An unique carved wooden seat by the sea in Holyhead, Wales.
