A Photographic Walk in Cemaes Bay

I live on the island of Anglesey and on New Year’s Day we, my husband and I, decided to go over to Cemaes Bay. It’s pronounced with a soft sounding K and e as in egg, with mice at the end.

Information boards are a great way to find out more about the place you are visiting. Everything is repeated twice here, in English and in Welsh. However, if you want to know more about Cemaes Bay, then hop over here.

It’s a very pretty fishing village and so easy to imagine what it was like in the 1800s, because very little has changed.

I love to walk along a promenade. And this one has a small car park each end with hills sheltering the cove on three sides. All the benches are dedicated to people who loved and appreciated this beautiful bay. I was delighted to find someone who had the same name as my dad, Keith Parry, among them. He also loved coming here.

The picturesque boats drew me closer to the harbour so I could get a better look. It’s lovely to see them in more detail.

This is a brand new structure since I’d last visited. As I approached I couldn’t see what was in the centre, but having seen the words Titantic, and the shape, I immediately wanted to stand on the end and be Rose from the film of the same name.

I was, of course, very interested to see what the plaque said, so took a closer look.

This is also a new structure and added during the last few months.The history of the lifeboat is explained here on it’s dedicated website.

We finished our walk with coffee we’d brought in a flask and a cold onion bhaji from our takeaway last night!

    1. Thanks you. It is lovely. We’ve been here almost seven years now. Originally we came from Manchester having loved Anglesey too. We do count our blessings. Thanks for commenting.
