About Me

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

Sunday April 22nd 2012 - Abergele or Anglesey?

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!

  1. What a decision to have to make, although wherever your travels take you, we hope you have a great time away. We're not booked up to go away until the half term with the kids so I will be sitting at home over the long weekend thinking enviously of you.


I really appreciate good comments - who doesn't? - but due to a recent tide of spam from anonymous readers all comments will now be moderated, and only those with a direct bearing on this blog will be published. I'm sure my regular blog readers/commenters will understand the need for this - and to anyone whose comment isn't published, you know why.
