295 days to go: Peace Perfect Peace
I woke to the sound of the waves and it was another lovely day.
After breakfast we walked to Llanbadrig Church. It is a tiny church perched on the top of a cliff. Legend has it that St Patrick was shipwrecked on the way back to Ireland and landed on the coast near Cemaes Bay. He survived thanks to a pure water well in a cave underneath the plot where the church stands. To give thanks for his rescue he is said to have built this church. Parts of the present building date back to the fifteenth century and it was used as a location for the Demi Moore film, Half Light.
Everytime I have visited the town I have come to this church, it is so peaceful. But this was the first time I got to sit through a service as they are only held on the fourth Sunday of the month between May and September. We made the very last service of the year apart form a candlelit carol Service which takes place in December.
The service was in Welsh and English and when it had finished we chatted to the pastor and some of the congregation who told us about dolphins and porpoises spotted off the shore the previous day.
Another day of walking before we retired to watch Sex In The City and an evening meal at The Harbour Inn.
During the day I wore
