Headed over to Anglesey for a break headed to back of RAF Valley to one of our fave spots at Cwmyran....
Now blocked with a shiny galvanised gate and no camping/cars/sleeping/anything signs (due apparently to a group of motorhomes parking accross the emergency access road to Valley and refusing to move when asked by RAF Valley security)

Luckily found a small spot overlooking one of the RSPB reserve.... Loverly and quiet.

Moved on and now on a little 5 pitch CS near to holyhead....
£12 a night without leccy
£15 with....
Shower/toilet wash room/chem disposal and grey water drop...

Nicely laid out and well spaced... On hardstanding....
Having a couple of nights here as developed slipping clutch intermittently so need to find a garage.

Headed to Cemaes Bay for some lunch (wood fired pizza by the looks)
Sun's out (and so are people....)
Breezy BUT fantastic to be away...
Headed for a car spares shop tomorrow to order a clutch slave cylinder to try to resolve our clutch issues (easiest and cheapest thing to replace first... AND from a quick nosy this morning it doesn't seem to be returning to a fully released position)

I've had a clutch slave cylinder which stuck in the operated position, the AA said it was impossible :)

The AA do have their moments....

Once when I had to call them out to a, broken cam chain on one of the landrovers...
Explained lack of progress due to the distributor not turning

Once when I explained the works van had siezed its engine solid....

Both times a patrol had to turn out pointlessly....
To be met with much shaking of heads from all of us at the waste of time and resources.

I feel like I am doing this trip with you, thanks for all the photos, and updates.👍
I'm a bit like a giddy school kid.... Been a, long time since we were away properly in the Moho...
Barring a couple or so weekend breaks it's been nearly 2 1/2 years (Dad was taken poorly then covid kicked in)
Since We were let off the lead properly....
Sad that some, of our favourite wild spots have gone BUT, I can live with nice CLs and very quiet (almost wild (as in pitch where you like) basic sites like this one...
And delighted at £15 per night
AND the lack of 'Peoplyness'

I'd almost forgotten how much fun it is waking to the sound of the waves ;-)
