10/05/18 – 12/05/18 Well we leave a wet and windy Black Rock Sands and meet up with Catherine on her maiden camper trip, we are going to keep her company and show her the ropes. Anglesey is so beautiful, so it’s a great hardship for us !!!!
Park in a layby just off the Brittania Bridge, to wait for Catherine, breathtaking views and gorgeous weather. Menai Bridge in the distance
Have booked into the The Tavern on the Bay, in Red Wharf Bay for lunch, 270 degree views from the restaurant, menu had so many dishes I liked was stuck for choice, in the end I ordered cassoulet bean tortilla, with loads of scrummy extras, Dave had Sea Bass and Catherine had hake, all lovely, would definitely recommend.
And because we were good and had no starters, we had, cherry amaretto cheesecake (me) Dave had his fav Creme Brulee and Catherine waffle and ice-cream no pics of these they went before we had time !!!! Finished our meal and was going for a stroll on the beach….oh no think again, the groundsman came over and told us after eating we had to leave, if we wanted to camp it was with electric (we don’t need it) £20.00 per night !!!! What a shame, the place was quiet, hardly any other cars in the carpark, I could understand if it was busy, we had also spent over £80.00 in the restaurant. Would definitely not recommend.
So off we headed for our site for the night Llanddona, right by the beach, Catherine just getting to grips with camping, sites her porta loo outside and states “people can see me here” yes correct so put it in the van, “oh right didn’t think of that” still making me laugh now.
Hundreds of little tadpoles swimming with Narly
Then it’s time for bed night night
Well she survived the night, so it’s off to Beaumaris to the best bread shop ever to get lunch, a bounty of Welsh goodies
And cakes for later of course !
Parked looking out to the sea with Beaumaris castle behind
I think she likes this camping malarky
But not the seagulls
Had a wander around Beaumaris lovely little town and harbour
Then off to Penmon point for our resting place for the night, sit watching the tide come in and spot 3 pairs of Eider ducks, who are not native to this coastline, so a lucky siting.
Wake up this morning to glorious weather and we also have another siting this time a seal. So have brekkie watching the different birds come and go, perfect.
All the soon it’s time for the maiden voyager to leave
Until the next time sister x
