Sunday Steps....A Look Around The Harbour

Hello its Sunday Steps,
I've got to get in my holiday posts!

This is Aunties caravan.

 Mom and dad have been coming here to
Trearddur Bay, Anglesey North Wales
 for lots of years, I was here last year also.
But this year is the last time, so mom made sure she got plenly of photos.

Trearddur Bay is on the west coast of Anglesey close to Holyhead. 
This is one of the main crossing places to get to Ireland on the ferry, so it can get very busy.
Most folks only see the docks and train station on their way though
This is
The Celtic Gateway Bridge, which goes
  from the high street to the ferry and train station

Today I'm going to show you the other side of the harbour

I'm back, mom just wanted to have a word!!!

"the reason it is our last time in the caravan, Auntie has been asked to replace it with a new one, as it is getting old. It looks ok from the outside but the floor has gone in places, and the owner of the site wants newer caravans on there.
To have a new van would be just to much money, so its got to go. We have enjoyed coming to this place, me for the last 32 years and Howard 50!!! next year we are looking forward to finding somewhere new to go to and explore"

 "of course George it will have to be dog friendly"

"Thanks Mom, come on where we going"

"Dad and I have some ideas you will just have to wait"

Thanks for coming back for
 Sunday Steps
Have a good week
See Yea George xxx

George that is such a beautful place. Mom has a very, very good friend who lives in Lancashire (Blackpool). Glad to see it's dog friendly almost everywhere!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Now I can REALLY understand why your mom wanted to make the very MOST of this vacation. Sad that you won't be going back to such a LOVELY and memory filled location, butt I just KNOW that they will find a place that is Almost as special.
THANK You for sharing the beauty.

Gosh George

What a beautiful place! I am sorry it was the last time you'll be there, though. I hope that wherever you end up next year is just as much fun and as beautiful as this one! Thanks for sharing it with us, George!


Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hi again Bro - you goin' OK? Tell your pawrents that my pawrents came into Wales on the ferry from Ireland down the other end - from Rosslare Harbour to Pembroke in Sth Wales, so they missed your spot!!

I'm crushed about that caravan, my pawrents would give their eye teeth to have that at their disposal - but I'm sure you peeps will make it right and find another (dog friendly) holiday spot for you to travel. My mum is always researching dog friendly holidays.... the latest idea involves hiring a camper trailer and seeing some of the Flinders Ranges - they also call it the outback, and I've heard the words "possums, wombats and kangaroos" being used when describing it. My ma - however, is a wimp and she thinks she can rough it...... but I worry about her not being able to have electricity and runnin' water and so forth!! We will wait and see what happens!

Your holiday does look wonderful, it's great to get away huh??! But it's GREAT to get home too!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

Berts Blog said...

REally glad you explained why it was the last time.

I love your tour guiding us through the beautiful and amazing sites.

I guess how we will just have to wait and see what really cool places you will take us to next year.

keep them pictures coming.


Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

And here we were, thinkin' that caravan looks better than our house! What a fantastic place to visit.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & bella

Bouncing Bertie said...

More totally gorgeous photos George. What a sunset! But isn't it a shame about the old caravan.
Toodle pip!

verobirdie said...

Too bad the caravan has to go. I'm sure you will miss the place. I loved wandering through those pictures.

Rose H (UK) said...

Looks like you all had a glorious holiday! Love the shot of you peering through the 'bouy George'!
Mom's got some lovely shots again :o)
It was great to see you yesterday George - I wouldn't have let Uncle Trev bite you! Thank Mom again for me please :o)
Lots of love
Auntie Rose

Molly the Airedale said...

Wow! The other side of the harbour is just breathtakingly beautiful! What a shame that it's the last time. Make it a great last time, right!

Maggie and Mitch

I AM HERE! IT IS ONLY EARLY MORNING FOR ME, BUT I AM HERE! Oh.....that caravan is splendid, but I suppose auntie has to follow the rules of the owner. But George mi man, you look splendid. You look as if you are growing up old fellow, so slender and tall, with a face so proud and happy. The fresh salt air does ANY BODY GOOD, PEEP OR POOCH! Thank you for this Sunday promenade....we love you so!!!!

What a neat looking bridge to the ferry!

How sad your Auntie is being forced out, but then of course it opens up new adventures!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

What a lot of beautiful pictures!!! Everything looks great!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

George that is quite the place! The photo of what was it? a dam? a pier? curving off into the distance was mesmerizing! Of course luved all the others too! The diving bells were interesting (funny you peeking through one of the ports ;), and that bridge was wild! Lots and lots of stainless steel went into that baby! The harbor is so relaxing to look at :D Thanks for sharing your lovely holiday! :D

Waggin at ya,

Boo21's Mom said...

Your photos are wonderful. How sad that this is your last visit, but what wonderful memories you must have! Thanks for the tour! Looking forward to seeing the new place you find!

karen said...

Hello George
You didnt say if you met Will and Kate in Anglesey!
You will have to come and stay in Aberdovey with us - of course dogs rule in the Boomerang household.
Weather looked lovely.

Pat said...

Beautiful holiday spot George. Thanks for showing us your final trip there - the photos are stunning! xx

The Black and Tans. said...

Being nosey terriers we were wondering why it would be your last visit George. Thanks for telling us! You certainly had great weather while you were away; could you organise blue sky and sun for the end of Septmeber? ;-)

Moth said...

Sad news about the caravan! Hope you get a fun holiday next year anyway. Those were more amazing photos - what a beautiful place. Leigh's Mum has just bought a little campervan for her and her friend and their 2 whippets to holiday in. I don't think it would fit us 5 dogs though! Love from Magic x

Wyatt said...

That looks like such a great place to have a holiday. We love your mama's pictures. What's that yellow thing? Looks like an old scuba suit...
Next summer, you should come to Oregon! Stanzie would like that :)


Elizabeth Keene said...

Just love the photos of the shore (and the bi-lingual seagull sign). :) Sorry about the caravan (we call those trailers/RVs over here). I know you'll find some exciting new place to replace it, though. :)

Peggy Frezon said...

I love seeing new places with you. So beautiful. Your photos are stunning. And I laughed so hard at George looking through the scuba window thing! hehe. Thanks!

Cat said...

Hey George, you do have a great life...all the places that you go and all those fun stairs that you get to climb up and down. Me, well, I have the stair situation down pat now since I am an adult (turned 1 two weeks ago), but Ginger, well, she is only 10 weeks old, but she is already trying to do the stairs even though Mom tells her no....I'm kinda afraid to see what she will be like in a few months if she is already a little terror..uh, I mean terrier. We think all your photos could be postcards...they are sooooo pretty!! Thanks for sharing them with us!! Tail wags from your other terrier friends, Ellwood and baby Ginger.

My Mind's Eye said...

Hi George
Auntie's caravan is ina beautiful location. We are sorry she will have to leave. But I bet there will be a new and exciting adventure in store for you next year. Your mom takes absolutely beautiful pictures.
Hugs Madi and Mom

There's always room for you in Brighton Georgie!I'd love to show you my beach and tear around the park with our pals....

sprinkles said...

I'm glad your mom explained, George. I misunderstood and thought she meant that YOU couldn't go back anymore but that she and your dad could.

What a beautiful area!

Jans Funny Farm said...

Kind of sad to be the last year you'll go there. But we're sure your folks will find someplace exciting for next year.

That sure is a beautiful place, George! Thanks for explaining why it will be your last time there. We're sure you'll find somewhere awesome for future visits! :)

TwoSpecialWires said...

We're glad we got to make the last visit with you. You always make us feel as if we are right there with you. And we can easily see why and how this place has been so special to you. It's sad to realize how things must change, sometimes. But ... we're sure you'll find new wonderful adventures. You always do. And now you have the pictures to help your memories. They'll last forever.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Wow those steps are amazing. Weren't you scared George?? Baby would be scared for sure. Your AUnties trailer looked fine to us! If the floor gave out, it would be fun to go under it!! When you go to Wales do you speak in a Welsh bark?? Have a good weekend.
Smooches from pooches,
BabyRD & HOotie

Our mama loved all the pictures....your part of the world reminds her so much of her time in Ireland...she lived there for a year while us boys stayed with sisterbean....mama was recuperating from two years of colon surgeries and complications that went along with them.

Sorry, we got a bit carried away with this comment........we are looking forward to getting to know you better.

There are some outstanding harbour scenes here particularly with the angles, clouds and sky.
Yes, I have only ever seen the railway station and the town back in the mid 90s when I used a lot of railrovers, so that bridge is new to me.
That's a great seagull sign !
