Even More Holiday Snaps

Above is the edge of Anglesy at Black Rock with Puffin Island in the distance. It was a bit like Craggy Island and we expected Father Ted to appear around the beach any moment! It was jolly windy and cold and we didnt stay long especially as the only cafe was run by an idiot who insisted we buy something before she would hand over the key to the only toilet in 10 miles ( except the one on the lighthouse ). She shot herself in the foot there as we instead of buying lunch there as intended we just bought a bottle of water and left for the nearest town to eat. I wonder how many other folk she frightens off in this manner? WE couldn't see any puffins etiher. They had obviously been frightened off by the cafe owner and gone somewhere more friendly.

Below is the town fortifications at Conway . From the top of Conway castle you could see the wall going all the way around the town. In the castle they had some sword fighting demonstrations by some amusing chaps who would have been at home on the set of Monty Python's Holy Grail. They also showed us how to put on armour ( very useful ) and made a young child cry by making him hit one of the knights with a big bendy sword.

"YOu don't frighten us, English pig-dogs! Go and boil your bottoms, son of a
silly person! Ah blow my nose at you, so-called "Arthur Keeeng"! You and
all your silly English Knnnnnnnn-ighuts!!!"

We saw Spamalot - very, very funny. Anyone visiting London in the next few months - I'd urge you to go see it.

Just watched the Ken Dodd videos in your little side bar. he may be getting on a bit, and a tad old fashioned, but he's still very funny. And he's a particularly fine vent!

So there you are.

Thanks roger and jonathan for those words of wisdom. We didnt see Spamalot but saw lots of other things. Just about to write up our London doings now. Ken's vent act is hilarious and we are so glad he got Dicky Mint to join him on stage.
