Misty day on Anglesey
by Laura Basanta
Benllech Beach October 2011
Hi there Wil,
I lived on Anglesey for 4 months. Should I even mention that I now wake up to Anglesey on my mind?The sirens still call me.
Last spring, I awoke to a lovely sunny day in Pentraeth
. I felt the ocean calling and took off for Benllech to walk to the beach. As I was walking along the beach, always searching for the perfect shell on the day and patterns in the sand, I looked to the northwest to see a wall of mist approaching.
I wasn't used to the sea or the whims of the Welsh Winds! In a matter of minutes I was enveloped in mist that blotted out the sun.
Where had the sun gone? Was it shining on the mountains? After my walk, I returned to a sunny Pentraeth, off in the distance towards Benllech I could see the mist there.
One of the many delights of Anglesey..............Is it misty there today?
The sun that shone on you between Benllech
and Pentraeth is definitely shining elsewhere today. Think of Bruce Chatwin's descriptions of Welsh Rainy Sunday afternoons. Even though it's Friday.
At least, we have had no snow this year. Thankfuly. We don't do snow. It's the cataclysm that the media hopes for around here.
I imagine that there would have been a vertical drizzling mist over Red Wharf Bay this morning. I enjoy this type because I find it strangely nurturing and reassuring for my heavy Celtic soul.
Mind you, I'd swop it all for bright sunshine, blue sky and heat.
Thanks for getting in touch. And if you have any more tales of your stay on Anglesey to share or photographs please do get in touch.
Best wishes to you and all the best for an excellent 2012.
