Sorry about that. What I mean is, drive into the Heart of Anglesey and Get Lost!
You're on an Island and no matter how far you travel you'll always end up on the coast road.
Unless you're on a lame horse with a lazy eye, then you'll probably end up going around and around in circles for a few days.
You'd better take some supplies with you, just in case.
I'VE ADDED NEW DRIVE FOR YOU - IT'S LISTED FURTHER DOWN
After a day's work I cannot unwind before moving onto private projects unless I can cruise through greenery.
I believe that green countryside is as a good as twenty minutes meditation.
That part behind your conscious mind - the unconscious - performs a deep clean of the days events; places them in a box and then throws it away.
I drive. I just drive. I have my favourite routes that transect the Island diagonally and those that take me in a circle.
Among my favourite driving routes are:
I'll add the links as I construct the pages. It shouldn't take too long.
In the meantime, I'm sure you'll have found by now that I've attached links that will at least distract you for a while.
Anglesey inclines and undulates, thereby soothing those sharp edges about which your thoughts too often gather.
Unexpectedly - yet with such sensuous ease - it rises. A narrow and winding road entices you upwards to the heights of the North East Coast.
From here, you travel with the occasional trepeditous preciptiousness nervously steeply down and around the odd blind corner.
The Island's entire eastern coastline opens up to you, from Point Lynas all the way to Puffin Island.
The further you travel, the more pleasant and gentle are the invitations to stop and enjoy stunning, nay, STAGGERING Views.
Wishing for more You Click here...
I promise you that there is a connection - of sorts - on this pleasant cross-country drive around the cente and north west of Anglesey.
These are narrow roads that entice you onwards through pleasant green countryside with a few stops along the way.
After a while you'll be sorely tempted to take the narrowest turning along the way just to see what's down there. My advice is, DO IT!
Some of the stops along the way will really get you reflecting on your life so far and on the too swift passing of time and fleeting opportunities that you should grab.
St Peirio's Churchyard will refocus your attitude. Say YES! instead of NO! for change.
CLICK HERE to escape from everything for a while. Take a picnic with you, whether it's Summer or Winter.
You'll enjoy this. Not a lot. It all depends on how comfortable you are on the narrowest of roads at the narrowest part of Anglesey.
Like it says on the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy - DON'T PANIC!
White Beach is a pleasant large-pebbled discovery that's not over-run with visitors.
A great beach for fishing and for a pleasant walk up and down the coastline along the Fedw Felin National Trust Path.
As if that's not enough, the roads in the area lead you around and around.
If you're lucky you may even reach Llanddona, which is another monster nervy road.
CLICK HERE to escape and also to test your nerve. Bring a flask of Camomile Tea with you, just in case.
If you really enjoy getting lost in the countryside and enjoy making unexpected discoveries, may I respectfully guide you my Ambles and Walks page.
These walks are as gentle or strenuous as you choose to make them.
If you're on holiday from a stressful place in your life, then I believe that the coastal walks will help you discover a peaceful and contented antidote to what ails you.
We need space and we also need to make new discoveries, because a mind that doesn't encounter unexpected pleasant stimulation can eventually break your heart.

Just found your site today, and is great. I wrote earlier about Washi Bach? Both sides of my parents’ families are from Sîr Fôn, Hafod Llwyn and Tregele.

Aberffraw beach is so special to me as this is where we have scattered our dogs ashes after her passing - seems really strange every time I go back there

Washi bach was a familiar figure when I was growing up in Pentraeth in the fifties and sixties, although his visits were infrequent. As somebody else
