It suddenly occurred to me this morning that even though it's only two weeks since my Easter camping trip it's only another two weeks to the next bank holiday - I didn't realise it was so close and I didn't have anything booked. Better get something sorted out pdq!
I'd been so impressed with the Manorafon site at Easter that I decided I would make a return sooner rather than later and the next bank holiday would be ideal, however when I rang and spoke to the owner she told me she was fully booked for that weekend. I expected that really, though I must confess to feeling a bit disappointed - it was my own fault for leaving it until now though, if I'd thought about it sooner I could have booked when I was there before. She did take my number though and said if she gets a cancellation before then she will give me a ring. So not really being in the mood to make lots of phone calls trying to find somewhere else I decided I would just revisit my favourite site on Anglesey as I know I'll get a pitch there with no problem. And if it so happens that the owner of Manorafon informs me of a cancellation, even at the very last minute, then changing destination will be no problem as both places are reached from the A55. So - Abergele or Anglesey? I won't really know until I get there!
- Hi! I'm Eunice and I live in Bolton, Lancashire, with my two dogs Sophie and Sugar and an assortment of cats - well it used to be Sophie and Sugar, now it's Sophie and Poppie. I first began camping back in 1997 when my then partner took me to Anglesey for my birthday weekend. We slept in the back of the car - a hatchback - using the cushions off the settee at home as a mattress, and cooked and brewed up on a single burner camping stove. The site was good, the views were great, the weather fantastic and I was completely hooked. Following that weekend we got a two-man tent and some proper accessories and returned to Anglesey two weeks later, then over time we progressed to a three-man tent followed by an old trailer tent, then a new trailer tent, a campervan and finally a caravan. When my partner decided that the grass was greener on the other side of the street - literally - in April 2009 and I suddenly found myself alone after fifteen years, I decided there was no way I was going to give up camping and caravanning if I could cope on my own. This blog is the story of my travels, trials and tribulations since becoming a solo camper - I hope you like it
