THEME: I want to go to...
CONWY, North Wales
(Water color, pencil and Prisma color pencils)
Conwy, (known in English as Conway, rather than the Welsh version), is a small town located on the coast of North Wales at the estuary of the River Conwy. It is a walled town with both trains and roads having to go through the walls to get to the town center. It is a quaint town of the middle ages with a large castle built by Edward 1 in the thirteenth century.
The reason I would like to go back to Conwy is because I have happy memories of our time spent there as a family. Our boys in their teens were able to scramble all over the castle, up and down towers and waving to me in a heart-stopping way from the top of of the unfenced towers. We ate dinner at a wonderful fish and chip restaurant across the road from the castle. In the narrow main street of the town there are some other tea shops where they serve absolutely delicious cream teas, some in Victorian style rooms and some located in small flower-filled cobbled gardens. There are book shops, art galleries and gift shops full of Welsh crafts. Turn a corner off the main street and you are at the harbor. There you can find the Smallest House in Great Britain which is approximately 9 x 3 feet with a ceiling height of less than six feet. To crown it all the harbor has enough boats to keep my husband happy and the boys too, for that matter.
One last thing. I have been to Conwy numerous times and each time the sun was shining!
