This wee town on the north coast of Wales is fabulous!  It was built by king Edward I in the 12th century. The town is surrounded by a wall that incorporates a massive castle (of course).

It has a simple charm and an easygoing atmosphere. Beautiful to boot. We walked the town and along the quay stopping to check out Britain's smallest house (see picture). Sampled some local delicacies, welsh cakes, stilton and pork pies, turkey and cranberry pies, you know the usual. We stumbled across the local watering hole where everyone knew each other and were more than willing to greet one another with a boisterous hello.

The next day we toured the castle (see pictures) and stopped at a cool little café that is built into the wall surrounding the town. We soaked up some sun as we have been pretty lucky with the weather so far.

After relaxing for a little while we scoured the town for a pub that served food at 6pm to no avail. We had to choose between Italian and Indian. Being in the UK we assumed Indian was a safer bet. It was undoubtedly the best Indian cuisine we have ever had!  Wow. We were so content after the meal we called it a night as it could not get any better. So we thought... We stopped by a convenience store for a juice and came across potato chips that sounded pretty great. "flame grilled steak" flavour. We had to indulge. It was a tough decision between the steak, roasted chicken, and prawn cocktail flavour. Pretty wild yet tasty!  We finally made it back to the hostel and let the countless sheep "baa" us to sleep.

On to beatle town and blackpool!
