Beaumaris Pier

Hello,

I was doing an engine test a few weeks ago and after launching from Caernarfon I decided to nip to Beaumaris.

I had not seen the huge floating platform that has been attached to the pier before,but gratefully tied up to the large structure in search of a meal.

Ah! Locked gates and no way off! No other safe landing points aside feom beaching it and was told I would be charged for an unlock.....

Thanks. Money now spent elsewhere. Maybe that's what they wanted?
