Our first visit to Wales

After two days in Ireland it was time to head back to the United Kingdom with our next port of call being Holyhead, Wales. We were up early enough to have breakfast at about 8:00am at Windows Cafe and the outside view looked cloudy with a real threat of rain. The day’s forecast called for a combination of rain & drizzle so we made sure we were prepared for that before leaving Azamara Journey.

Caernarfon Castle and Beaumaris Castle

8:00am was the scheduled arrival time in Holyhead, but the timing of our morning was to suit the first of two tours we had booked - both being visits to castles built under the reign of King of England and rampant castle builder Edward I (also known as Edward Longshanks because he was tall): Caernarfon Castle and Beaumaris Castle.
