MAGICAL PENMON DAY OUT
by Raymond Macbride
(New Brighton, Merseyside)
A good friend asked me if I’d been to Penmon Point on Anglesey. I said “never heard of it.” He said “You don’t know what you are missing.” So on Sunday 26 June 2011 I went to see for myself.
We drove towards the Priory in Penmon and paid a small fee to drive up the narrow road, with wild berry trees on both sides –where they blueberries or what –and after about 1 mile you see the lighthouse.
Behind the Penmon Point lighthouse which has a couple of black bands against a white background is Puffin island slightly to the right of the lighthouse.
This was such a beautiful place, actually I can’t believe such places exist. I am a keen photographer and was snapping away for hours.
I loved the deep ring of the bell in the lighthouse, which I am told is called Trwyn Du, which sounded every 30 seconds.
So I would recommend this amazing place to anyone who would love a day out on Anglesey island.
It’s fair to say this would be one of my top 5 places.
And so I would like to say many thanks to my friend John, who suggested a trip out to Penmon Point.
