You see, before visiting the sea zoo, we were very, very touristy indeed.
We went to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch! (phew - it just took me about five minutes to type that. And I still can't be sure I've got it right.)
What's that you say? You want photographic proof? Well, ok then - I can oblige!
Sorry it's a bit small, and not very good quality - but I did my best. You can see it bigger if you click on it.
That was the highlight of the trip, really - I mean, it doesn't get any better than elbowing past seven coachloads of people in order to look at a ridiculously large train-station sign and take pictures of a tumbling monkey, right?
Seriously, though, Llanfair was fun, but weird. It's a tiny place with little besides a train station and a shop / tourist information place, but there's HEAPS of tourists. Apparently the record number of coaches parked in the carpark at one time was 48 (according to the nice man at the wool shop - yes, the wool shop! There's a wool shop as well as the train station and the touristy place! Bonus! I only saw it as we were leaving, but I nagged the NBM until she agreed to re-park and let me out to have a little look. Purely for research purposes, you understand. Or at least, it was, until I discovered that there was a sale on. Double Bonus!)
Anyway, moving on.
The last thing I have to show-and-tell was our visit to Conwy Castle. Wilmington made a desperate big for freedom and tried to scale the castle wall...
... But I didn't let him get away. And I made sure I kept a pretty firm grip on him when we were at the top of the tallest turret, too:
And that's it on our holiday-ette. Except for just one last picture, because Delaware wanted to have the last word from atop these fab his 'n' hers thrones:
