A 7-day summer camping holiday was planned. Before the kids break up from school causing the roads to be come gridlocked, and before winch-bitch Kiki leaves the UK. Time for another adventure.

A beautiful, sunny Anglesey was the destination for a few days.

 

Here is a confused Kiki trying to understand the longest place name in the UK.

 

A nights wild camping by RAF Valley made for a great location.

 

Quiet spot tucked away amongst the dunes for our camp.

 

It was pretty windy, and sand does not make a great condiment for food, but caterer Kiki is always prepared with a wind shelter.

 

A cider on the beach makes for a relaxing evening.

 

And a pretty sunset helps.

 

The next few days we explored more of Anglesey, heading around South Stack with lots of great scenery.

 

And we dropped into Snowdonia for a day too, although it didn’t stop raining at all.

There were plenty more camping opportunities.

 

Then we drove over to the Lake District for the remaining few days. Sightseeing and green laning was the order.

Chef Kiki working on his own recipe.

 

Camped next to a green lane, nice and quiet and only a couple of trucks passed in the evening, and a dog walker first thing in the morning.

 

Not having visited the Lake District since I was 14, and not remembering what to expect, the views were astonishing.

 

Driving the Old Coach Road.

 

30°C and very little wind mean’t it was getting quite warm.

 

So a dip in Crummock Water was in order. Here is a dripping Kiki.

 

Spectacular mountains and valleys, so much to left to see and experience. As a result will definitely return for a longer spell in the Lakes.
