Camping By Special Request.

Today is the Saturday of the late May Bank Holiday weekend. The weather is good, our daughter is visiting from London and we are minding the grandchildren while their mum and dad grab themselves their own welcome break away overnight.



I was given a list of preferences by our 4 year old grandson before he arrived - via FaceTime yesterday evening. Amongst them was a request to remove or replace the picture from the wall of his bedroom at our place, Teddy Bear's Picnic, as he no longer likes it. Probably too old for all that stuff now. Next he wanted tea, which had to be a MacDonald's Happy Meal, eaten within the camper van.


Every time they visit, granddad has to spend most of the time sat with them in the camper van while they decide which will be their bed when their turn comes for their first trip away in it.


Today we decided to fulfil their request by driving the mile to the local Maccy's in the camper van to picnic on their car park. What joy!



However, all concerned seemed to have a great time on the two mile round trip!

Another Beautiful Walking Day.

Today has been another fabulous day in relation to the weather, and we decided to make the most of it by driving to the Cemlyn Nature Reserve, a National Trust Property on the North coast of Anglesey.



Apparently the lagoon which is home to the many varieties of birds that attract twitchers from all over the world was created by an eccentric home owner in the 1930's who built a weir across land that flooded and emptied each day on the tide, something that would never be allowed today I suspect.





After clearing the system with a brisk walk it was off to Amlwch Port for lunch at the newly opened cafe at the side of the copper museum. The port is historic and was not only used to transship copper ore but also had boat building activity within the three dry docks.


Everything is still as it was all those years ago, with the date stone above the port building on the quayside stating 1853.


The port is now mainly used by leisure boats with the occasional working boat.
