Ynys Llanddwyn

















Summer has just arrived in London like a bolt from the blue. Before my thoughts turn to Pimms and watermelons I thought I would share a few dark and moody photos from our recent trip to Wales. We spent a few days in the Isle of Anglesea and whilst we were there visited the isle of Ynys Llanddwyn. Ynys Llanddwyn means 'The Church of St.Dwynwen'. The ruins in the photos above are of a little chapel built in the 16th century on the site of the original Church of St.Dwynwen. Dwynwen lived in the 5th century AD and is the Welsh patron saint of lovers. A Google images search of Ynys Llanddwyn yeilded many pictures of women posing atop the landmarks of the island bearing their breasts, not sure if the two things are related?!

This was a bracing blustery day and we were sure the clouds would erupt and we would get rained on but we were lucky. We walked all along Newborough beach and out to the farthest point on the Island to eat our roast lamb sandwiches (when in Wales...)
