Yet again armed with the 5MP D7 and the 3MP Canon Ixus v3.

We stayed in a cottage on the hillside above Conwy:

With a perfect view of the castle:

We went and tramped around lakes

until it rained and we scampered back to Conwy for a walk along the river/seafront

Then Carnavon Castle. Where it rained again

So we drove over the Menai Straits to Anglesey where it wasn't raining

The next day... It rained and we mooched about Betwys Y Coed until it stopped, then we walked round Capel Curig

and climbed the hills around Lake Ogwen.

Next day... It was raining, so we visited the amazing Plas Mawr house in Conwy

and finally managed to actually visit Conwy Castle

Then we went to Llandudno in the rain

We climbed the Great Orme and then came back down and finally in the late afternoon the rain relented

and finally it was a beautiful evening

At last a day dawned without rain. We went and walked to Aber Falls

and found some wild (presumably welsh) ponies

So we went off to Portmeirion. Where it rained.

Finally, on our last day it was not only dry in the morning, but the forecast was for a fully dry day. So we decided to go up* Snowdon!

Looking back, it was a nice holiday - in spite of the rain.

*: OK, we cheated - we went up on the train. But we did walk all the way down again.
