The Spectre of Welsh Rarebit

          Mon 26th October

                         The second day of our bronze anniversary tour of North Wales found us venturing out to Rhuddlan castle near the town of Rhyl.This was another castle built by Teddy the first to keep the locals in check.It is not as big and intricate as Conwy castle.
Just four walls with towers in each corner and a massive gatehouse.
One of the novel points of this castle is that it had its own dock on the river Clwyd where it could be resupplied if the natives were congregating at the front gate.

              One the way to the castle we stopped off in the village of Rhuddlan at a nice place called Esther's tearooms for the best Welsh Rarebit I've ever tasted.This wasn't just cheese on toast it was made properly with the cheese sauce simply overflowing.This sumptuous meal was finished off with a slab of nicely moist fruit cake.Sustenance for the trip ahead to the castle
                         After spending some time at the castle we headed back into the town of Rhyl to sample one of the hostelries o our favourite solicitors Messrs Weather & Spoons for some light refreshments before heading off to see the first local showing of Spectre which I thought was amazing.Well recommended.
                         All in all a fine way to finish off my eighth anniversary.A good ending to the day preceded by another castle visited and in the excellent company of Lady Watson.
                           Seemingly tomorrow we're heading to the narrow gauge railway at Blaenau Ffestiniog.Watch this space.
