May 6th: Abergwyngregyn to Menai Bridge [town]- about 10 miles SPRING: SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TIME OF THE YEAR – “It just goes too fast!” – Bill
An early morning start from the car park on the path near Abergwyngregyn…it was a journey through springtime greenness helped by the brightness of the sun. Some of the lanes we walked between Aber-Ogwen and Bryn, and along the Dyffryn Cegin Valley were spectacular. We were impressed with the Bangor coastal walk where we met 82 year-old Bill who power-walks about 6 miles a day and who proves that walking makes you younger!! It was great to cross the Menai Bridge just to put our feet on Ynys Mon – the Isle of Mon. A great day!
[Abergwyngregyn is a settlement of great antiquity and pre-conquest importance. This was the seat of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last native Prince of Wales. Source: Wikipedia]
