We toured the castle in Conwy. The castle was fun and had lots to do. When we left Conwy we headed to Bangor and Anglesey Island. Beaumaris castle is on Anglesey Island. Beaumaris castle is just outside the town of Beaumaris, named after the castle. Beaumaris was my favorite castle. It had 15 – ft thick walls and three gatehouses. It had a moat to keep invaders out. The castle was token by Welsh rebellions and was held five year. The castle was built by Edward I but was never finished. A total of £15,000,000 was spent on the castle. My siblings spent most of the time at the castke looking for a old toilet in the castle. When we left after, staying there for a few days, we drove around the Isle of Anglesey. The Isle of Anglesey was where the Druids of Ancient Britain came to learn. There were standing stones, which were stones that the Druids stood on end, called standubg stones. The drive had some very pretty sights of the Welsh countryside. We had lunch in a parking lot in a small town. We ate sausage rolls and continued on. We had a game going were when someone saw a standing stone they would get a pound. There were eight standing stones sites along the drive, most of which were on the side of the road. We went back to Bangor and camped for the night after the drive. We had thanksgiving in Bangor. We got three turkeys because they were small and not massive like the ones in the U.S.. We cooked it all in the camper starting around noon and everything was cooked at around six. The food was delicious. We took a walk afterwards into the town from the car park where we were parked. We drove into Snowdonia, which is a park in north Wales. We stopped next to the tallest mountain in the UK, called Mt. Snowden. Jack, Sylvia, Annabelle, Jennah, and I hiked up the trail to the top of Snowden. We didn’t get far, because it was pouring and gusting very hard. We all got soaked. We dried off in the camper and drove to Harlech. We got to Harlech too late and the castle closed so we camped in a golf course parking lot and walked around the small town of Harlech. There wasn’t to much in Harlech but we got candy bars at a store and walked back to the camper. We walked up the big hill to Harlech castle, another one of Edward I’s castles. It was very very windy that day and we couldn’t go up on walls. It was a nice castle and was fun to explore. The castle was besieged for nine months before the people inside surrendered because they were starving. We drove the longest day yet that day. We drove three hours that day to Cardiff. We stayed in a parking lot on the Wharf. Back in Bangor my mom and dad said they had a surprise for us but we couldn’t know what it was till we got it. The surprise was the Doctor Who Experience, which was very cool and fun to go to. We went to a RV park and stayed up to 2 AM doing laundry. We went to the Cardiff Christmas Fayre, which was quite lame. We left Cardiff and drove to Pembroke where we stayed over night.
