The only greeting I know in Welsh is "bore da". Which means "good morning". I've asked Welsh friends before what "hello" is in Welsh but there seems to be no definitive answer, just like there is no proper "hello" in Chinese. When people ask me what "hello" is in Chinese", I kind of shrug my shoulders and say "har-lo" in a Chinesey kind of way and they seem happy with that. What they're not happy with is when I say there is no real "hello" - that get's them all in a tizzy and then they need to argue it out with me. Big sigh.
Moving on ....
Our friends arranged for us to go for a surfing lesson in Rhosneigr in Wales. Or should I say, they arranged for the Grumps and Ben to go for a surfing lesson and put me on child watch for George. Not that I was complaining one jot. I can't swim for a start.
So it was a literal jump on the motorway on a Friday afternoon, to make an early dinner booking at Dylans restaurant in Menai Bridge, a popular restaurant with fab food and lovely terrace views.

Did you know you can use an empty mussel shell as "pincers" to pinch out mussels from their shells?
Views from the restaurant terrace.
Followed by a little evening walk to watch the world go by.
The Grumps taking videos to for his little "movie" of our trip.
Me - happy and well fed.
And the next day at Rhosneigre ....
And being unprepared for George's decision that he wanted to go in the sea (I thought I would be sitting in a nice cafe with him enjoying a cup of Earl Grey), I had to kit out the young boy.
Little boy's joy. Priceless :o))
Last Note :
- Thank you for all the lovely recommendations from everyone who follow me on Instagram and realised I was in Wales heading towards Anglesey. Keep the suggestions coming, I've a few more visits planned that way!
