With the weather set fair i booked an overnight stop in Holyhead for me and Julie and we took in 2 fine walk's.On the friday with the tide going out around dinner time i thought it would be a perfect time to walk to Porth Cwyfan and see "Church Island" with the tide still in.Parking at Aberffraw we took the path along side the Afon Ffraw with it's great view's to the mountain's of the Lleyn Peninsula.

Even though it was early in the morning it was very warm in the sun and when we reached the coast we had extensive view's to all of the high Snowdonia mountain's,this really is a fantastic viewpoint.The path now head's above Braich Lwyd.

Soon we got our first glimpse of the church perched high on it's little island.

We had a short wait until we could cross the causeway to reach the church.

After a short break on the island we retraced our step's back to Aberffraw.

On saturday we parked by the lifeboat station and took the road that lead's to the Breakwater Country Park.Today was even hotter and i soon got bit by a cleg so we paused to put on some deet and were not bothered again all day.After passing through the park we took the steep incline heading for Holyhead mountain.

Me and Julie at the summit trig point.

We dropped down onto the coastal path which took us to the North Stack.

From the signal station the path head's along a lovely stretch of path close to the cliff edge.

The Skerries.

The view back to where we had walked.

The 2 walk's totalled 11 mile with 1,600 feet of ascent.

MILEAGE         258.5
ASCENT          59,100
TOPS               67.
