Combining and Almost a Family Holiday

My Daughter, Niece and Dad have just had a lovely 10 days away, we towed my Dads caravan to the lovely seaside campsite of Penrhyn Bay on Angleseys North Coast.  I thought is was perfect beautiful coast location, clean facilities, swimming pool and plenty of space for the children to play. It was also seconds from a glorious sandy beach.

We had some lovely days out around Angelsey too, The children were desperate to go to Foel Farm Park on the Menai Straight somewhere they remember going to 3 years earlier and loved.

We had a fabulous day to South Stack the remote Light house on the North East side of Holyhead we've been a few times before but this time made more special by having the privilege of seeing a Rossi Dolphin and her calf. No pictures I'm afraid I was too busy watching them.

The start of the holiday was overshadowed by high winds which were a little concerning being on the seafront but we put the storm straps on (all 5 of them) and a wind break we then tucked ourselves in for the night. It was very noisy non of us got much sleep!

The main thing for me though was my husband wasn't there. You guessed it he was combining.   We missed him everyday, being with a farm contractor for over 20 years you would think I'd be used to it. But It doesn't get any easier. It's like being a single parent.

Maybe it's good I do miss him and hate to say it, resent it, because it shows I still care that I'd rather he was with us. Though that doesn't make me feel any better.


  1. We booked 3 nights away and I only managed 1 because I missed my husband so much ;) looks like you had a lovely time

    1. Thank you for your kind comment.
