Menai Bridge Autumnal Beauty
by Wil from Anglesey Hidden Gem
Coed Cyrnol Woods Autumn Walk Menai Bridge
Dear Gentle Readers
I write to advise you that time is running out in Menai Bridge. Autumn is here and one good blow and the beauty that hangs golden, crimson and yellow in the canopy will be gone.
So while time is with us - and you - head on over to Menai Bridge and the astonishingly beautiful Menai Straits and fill your memories with the which be revealed to you so as to carry you through the skeletal grip of Winter.
I had just been to visit someone in the care home across the Menai Straits. It had been a good visit and so I hoped to reinforce that good feeling with a visit to Coed Cyrnol Woods and the Belgian Walkway under the Menai Suspension Bridge.
As I crossed the Bridge I noticed that at least half a dozen cars had stopped and people were standing at the rails taking photos of the magnificent sunset magnified by the wide Menai Straits. This is a sight that you must experience. You will find yourself almost unable to leave as you watch the sun sink gently in a pastel panorama of cloud and water.
Walk through the woods with the leaves crunching underfoot. Remember to stand still and send out your hearing. You hear Red Squirrels before you see them, but on,y if you stand still.
Discover this gentle beauty yourself, but get yourself here quick before the winter storms arrive.
