The Seaside…. My Very Favourite Place to Be….

I think the seaside has got to be my very favourite thing in the world. I just adore to be beside it and I have got to admit, I feel totally relaxed and at home when I am there.

While there, the memories take me back to my childhood holidays that I lovingly enjoyed with my family. Those times were where life was oh so simple and ever so magical. The ocean actually has the ability to mesmerise and calm me and I certainly get that feel good feeling.

Rhosneigr Beach is Mike & mine’s very favourite beach. From where we live, it is about a 90 minute drive away and is on the beautiful isle of Anglesey in North Wales. Any opportunity that we get, we go and set up camp there in one of the local campsites. There are two campsites to choose from in the resort and their locations are so good that you can actually leave the car on the site for your whole stay. The beach, shops, bars and restaurants are all within walking distance.

The stunning sandy beach is over a mile long with a few rocky outcrops along the way and along the top of the beach there are lovely sand dunes where you can sit and watch the many water activities including kayaking, windsurfing and boating.

We often go there for the day as we consider the 180 mile round trip well worth it. We pack up the car with the dogs, food and water and head off for our Rhosneigr fix, a good walk and a picnic. It is a great place, and one that I can’t wait to visit again.

I’m so looking forward to my next trip, and I might even get an ice cream! Bring it on šŸ™‚

Glamping on the Island of Anglesey

So this year, with the unpredictable ever changing weather forecast, Mike and I decided to leave the tent at home and opted to stay dry and try out a little bit of glamping on the stunning Island of Anglesey. We are regular visitors to the island but had only ever passed through this particular area. So, with sleeping bags, cooking equipment, walking gear and our two hairy hounds, we set off for our next adventure…..

Our days were mainly mainly spent doing circular walks where we took in the stunning views of natural outstanding beauty from the coastal paths and enjoying watching the different birds and spotting grey seals bobbing about in the many little hidden coves along the way.

Camping Pod – Anglesey Outdoors, Holyhead

The Beaches were plentiful and many were only discovered if you ventured along the coastal paths. These stunning rugged bays with little rock pools were just waiting to be explored and the dogs just loved them as much as we did.

We set up camp in a very comfortable pod at Anglesey Outdoors Campsite just outside Holyhead. The location was amazing and being just a ten minute walk from the nearest beach and the coastal path made it ideal. From the pod, we had spectacular views of the Snowdonia Mountain Range which was a lovely back drop for when we were enjoying our early evening barbecues.

Making daisies for my next afghan blanket

And to put the icing on the cake, I even managed to do a bit of crafting in my spare time. Making crochet daisies ready for my next Daisy Afghan, Blanket. Happy days!!!

Living the dream šŸ™‚
