Travelling again, this time to Anglesey for a six night staycation and only our third visit to the island. It’s a busy time at home with Rach and Paul’s wedding prep and Ellie and Andrew’s upcoming hen and stag parties, so we can only squeeze a short trip in this time.
On the day before we left we hosted a surprise garden party for Rach organised by her bridesmaids, to mark her original wedding day on Saturday May 15th. It rained on the Saturday which Rach was very happy about but luckily the sun shone on our little gathering on Sunday until late afternoon. We raised a glass or two of fizz and had a lovely time.
The journey to Anglesey was straightforward apart from taking a wrong turning at the very last minute, so we arrive at the campsite early afternoon. It’s on a farm and vineyard called Ty Croes about a mile and a half from Newborough. The site is a large field and it’s very quiet.
Once set up we enjoy lunch in the sunshine.
Eventually we wander out and visit the ancient St Geinwen Church and churchyard, just down the road. It dates back to the 12C and some bits even earlier.
We had planned on walking to the nearest pub for a pint to celebrate them reopening fully again today but it’s shut on a Monday! We hunt down the start of the footpath to the pub anyway, in anticipation of visiting tomorrow.
Back at the van it’s time for g&t’s outside until the sun drops and the clouds appear.
Dinner in the van and a Mission Impossible rerun before an early night.
