Outside the walls:
A look at the part of the walk on the walls from a tower at the corner:
A main gate, just wide enough for a car to pass! I love that they didn't replace the gates with wider ones, which is what Chester did with their walls.
After wandering around and doing two walks, I visited the oldest house in Conwy, built at the time of the castle and walls in the 13th century, Aberconwy House:
The main reason I decided to come to Wales was to explore the castles, and this castle does not disappoint:
For this part of the trip, I'm staying in a bed and breakfast, which is right outside of the walls. My room is about the size of a shoebox, and was formerly the dressing room to another room. And the bathroom is down the hall, but is only for my room, so it's not bad at all. My window is the one in the middle right above the sign:
And the view from the window:
Today I'll be going inside the castle, and inside an Elizabethan home, Plas Mawr. It is starting out to be a beautiful sunny day, with a high of 15 C, which is about 57 F - it would be great if I don't have to wear gloves like yesterday!
