[Thursday 30th December 2010]
Dad took us out for a trip around Angelsey today. We started off with a short walk along the cliffs from a viewpoint where we could see back to the Llyn peninsula, where Dad's house is - it was nice to see this from the opposite direction for a change.

From there we went on for a walk along the beach at Rhoscolyn - a very pleasant little cove - and a somewhat disappointing lunch at the pub there. Dad was however determined to rectify this and we headed to Beaumaris for tea at Sarah's which was excellent. They do a savoury cream tea - cheese scones with cream cheese and a tomato relish. This is a stroke of genius, and was very nice indeed.

Headed back to Dad's house after that by way of the only Waitrose in North Wales, by Meni Bridge, where we bought things for dinner. We decided we should cook for Dad tonight to give him a night off, and made vegetarian sausages and mash with assorted interesting root vegetables (turnip and beetroot), served with a bottle of Pol Roger. There was something wonderfully Betjeman-esque about bangers and mash with Champagne.
