hi chris
cemaes bay is tidal, the only access to the harbour is 2to3 hours either side of high water, if the tide is right. pubs, toilets and wine gum shops!! here

I thought you were fixing the leaks, not looking for waterlogged wine gums, should have known better, bet they were only the cheap ASDA ones
I've used the left over wine gums on the leaks, and we'll see tomorrow when I blow it up to full pressure!!

i can't decide which bit i'm most looking forward to:
Chris finding room to park all the trailers
Cardinal Bouy finding his way thru the Straits to meet the rest of us at Caernarfon
the look on the speed gun mans face when we all go past
the beer & pig butty

Cardinal bouys don't move. You're coming to me!

We then go round the island!

You missed: all the miserable faces of the black shadows, dripping in sweat because it's a scorching day and that's all they have to wear!
