Holiday 2023 day 5: St Asaph, Rhyl and more!

We had planned to drive to Liverpool on day 5 of our holiday. But Anya wasn’t feeling 100% so we decided to stay closer to our cottage in case we had to head back quickly (thankfully she was fine!) Our first stop was St Asaph’s Cathedral which we had driven past several times already.   […]
