Today’s first call was at Denbigh Castle, where we enjoyed the view:
On a clear day, you can see for a very long way, but today wasn’t one of those.
From there, we went on to Rhyl and its Seaquarium, where was saw some seals:
..and some jellyfish, amongst other things
Then we had an unscheduled detour to Rhuddlan Castle:
And then on to Chirk Castle, which by contrast to the ruins seen earlier, is a well-preserved family home. Here’s the front door:
…and here’s a bedroom
We had one last stop at Chirk Aqueduct, another Thomas Telford triumph. Not as big, impressive, scary or hard to pronounce as the more famous one at Pontcysyllte, but worth a visit to see it next to the railway viaduct, which can be seen from the walkway of the Pontcysyllte aquedct.
Then it was back to the hotel for a short rest before another fine meal at Fouzi’s.
