We went sailing
Following on from my previous post it seems that I had sneaked through what was to be the start of three weeks work dredging the harbour. Much more of the area has been closed off for safety reasons and so we will walk elsewhere for the duration of the work. Annie's not too concerned where she goes and is quite happy to go down to any beach and she especially loves to walk along the seawall.
Yesterday, just for a change we went off to Conwy for the day. We went down to the harbour and as luck would have it we were just in time to go on half hour sightseeing tour and as dogs were welcome on board, sailed for free, there was a concession for seniors, I thought that would be just the ticket :)
So we set sail on the Queen Victoria and the crew couldn't have been more helpful guiding us on, Annie was made a fuss of and I was asked which dog treats she would like so we settled on Markies and she was given three to eat :) I think there were only three other couples on board and we had a front row seat :)
My photos aren't great as they were taken through the boat's window and it was a grey day but here are a few.
I won't run through the very interesting on board commentary but you can discover for yourself the links between:
Conwy and the Titanic disaster
The Crown Jewels
The hillside site of a castle that is no longer there.
Our day out made a nice relaxing change and then it was time for lunch in a dog-friendly pub and then back home again.
