This year we were based at the Anglesey Outdoors center near Porth Dafarch. This is an ideal setting for the juniors as we have our own field away from the other users with plenty of space. Some families cheated this year and booked a Yurt or Cabin, one with a hot tub!! One family even opted to stay inside the center with heated rooms. The rest of us camped outdoors.
On the Friday we put up the tents and played games on the campsite. Later we got the fire going inside the Cabin before all going to bed. It rained overnight.
Saturday morning saw an early start and we arrived at 4 Mile Bridge (so called as it is four miles from Holyhead). Here we played in the surf way and went through the tunnel lots of times. The current soon slowed and everyone went through. After a short break and picnic we were off in the boats again and paddled across the inland sea and saw lots of birds and wildlife.
Back at the campsite for lunch some of us got our kites out. It was very windy and some crashed into the bushes. At 3pm it was off to the beach at Porth Dafarch. Some played on the sand, the tide was out so we soon had a surfing and swimming session. Later we had the BBQ on the campsite and more games before we all went to bed.
On the Sunday we had a go at coasteering on one of the beaches along the coast. We swam out to a small island and then round some cliffs and found a narrow cave and crack that led us back to the start.
We then headed off to 4 Mile Bridge again to meet the others. We ran the tunnel and were hit by a big rain storm. We packed up around lunchtime and returned to the campsite to pack up our stuff and head home.
