With the weather forecast, for the week just gone, so good, we rushed to get the Microlite caravan ready. I pumped up and checked all the tyres and we went to fill up with Diesel. At the service station, I noticed that the caravan tyres seemed low. I topped them up and drove less than 100 metres to the tyre and battery centre. The guys there were great. Two valves were replaced, the rubber seats having been damaged by long term (18 months worth) rubbing from the wheel trims. I rechecked the pressures after a few miles and all was fine. I had to find a suitable place to do this as the first really big Shell station had appalling access to the air line. Access via the petrol pump area and then reverse back out. This was on a very busy location beside the M6 and A500.
Happy once more , we headed cross country to Anglesey. I had pre-booked last minute online via the Caravan Club website. A great site with good warden as ever but no shower or toilet block, which is OK with the tiny facilities within our customised “LE” caravan. The weather was superb with full sun and 20 deg C (ish !) and a light cool breeze. Perfect for walking off the winter’s excesses! We did a couple of marathon walks. One along the coastal path near to Moelfre, the other along the extremely long and undeveloped Newborough Warren beach. We basically wore ourselves out deliberately and now feel much better for it.
We had a very pleasant few days, only returning for an important dental procedure to successfully save a couple of my “pegs”. Anglesey is great for ramblers. Now, where to next? Are we leaving the caravan behind on our next trip?
