ANGLESEY COAST PATH
Tywyn Mawr to Hen Felin [8.43 miles]
So here we are, back on Anglesey and it's just great to introduce our good friends Mike and Beryl to an area of coastal path that they had not walked before. Mike and Beryl introduced us to the wonders of coast path walking back in 2010 since when we have been totally hooked.
We opted to walk the more rugged sections of the Anglesey coast starting with this one. The weather was just perfect for this introductory walk but the forecast for the week ahead was not good. As it turned out this was the only fully sunny day!
We had barely walked a mile when we saw these Balwen Welsh Mountain sheep peacefully grazing beside the footpath.
At the time we had no idea of their name, and in spite of calling to them they resolutely refused to turn their heads so I could photograph their white faces.
As we progressed, a procession of 3 Irish ferries approached and docked at Holyhead. The first, a catarmaran being the most spectacular.
Heading north we followed the path which sometimes stayed on the cliffs and other times dropped right down to the sea shore.
As we approached the headland of Carreg-y-Frân once again we remarked on the high and dry beached old boat laying on its side.

We rounded the corner of the island and started heading east, descending through Ynys and Llyn y Fydlyn then climbing back up again.

Just beyond the islet of West Mouse we started looking for the waymark which took us inland for a short distance to where Mike had parked his car at Hen Felin.
