We left the hotel @ 6:30 in the morning. I was so tired I could barely keep my eyes open. We drove through Dublin arriving at the dock in bay number 24. While we waited our turn, we were one of the last to drive onto the Stena Adventurer, we ate our scones with butter and jam. We got off of the bus, on the fifth floor out of ten inside of the ferry. We walked up the green staircase that was really blue, to a table outside of Teen Town on the seventh floor. There was an arcade, cinema, and several snackbars. Mom and I played Gin Rummy and Dad and I walked out to the deck by the back of the Ferry.
Our destination was Hollyhead in Wales. We drove to Caernarfon Castle and had lunch in a sunny plaza next to a very cool castle. The castle was huge and the staircases were like a stone ice cream cone with a rope railing to hold on to. We saw the beautiful Princess Jean standing three stories up on a ledge. We called to her saying, “We are here to rescue you fair Princess.” We went to have ice cream. We got back on the bus and drove to our Hostel way up on the side of a hill. There was one problem, the bus wouldn’t fit up the steep narrow road, so we walked carrying our packs. The walk was very hard, instead of feet, I was left with “bloody stumps”, not seriously, but I felt like that.
I am glad to have the top bunk with clean green sheets to rest my head. Wales is a beautiful country, and thanks to Dad who helped me type this.
