4th- 6th April 2014
We had a lovely time in Criccieth, although the weather wasn't very kind to us and caused difficulty on some of our walks.
However the food and entertainment at the George Hotel was good and our meal on our way home was excellent.
I'll put the photos on the website as soon as I can, although there won't be so many due to the poor weather conditions.
13th- 17th April 2015
As 2015 is our 50th Anniversary, we are planning lots of special events, including an extended 5 day holiday to Torquay (Monday to Friday), staying at the hotel Regina.
