After all our exams and papers were finally complete Adrianna and I decided to spend the rest of our time exploring different places near Bangor. We only had a week before we both flew home so we decided to use it wisely. Our first trip was a 7 mile walk from our residence halls in Bangor to Beuamaris Castle. We checked the weather and picked a beautiful day to go. It wasn't too hot which was nice but the sun was shining. We left about 10am with some water and packed lunch. We looked at a map online to get a general idea of where to go but we figured we'd mostly wing it.
Our journey started off well and we only made a wrong turn when leaving Menai but a nice couple gave us directions to set us off on the right track. Their directions were better than ours but it took us by fields so if we got lost we had to ask the sheep which way to go...
We didn't always know exactly where we were but we could always (or most of the time) see the river and Bangor so we knew the general direction we had to head in.
Once, we both shouted for joy when we came out at the top of the hill which led into Beaumaris. These people who were tending sheep looked at us like we were odd but then we stared back because one of them was actually using a Shepard's staff! (We did think it would be awkward to take a picture of him staring at us)
