Ooh thanks Jim.  I should have thought of that a while ago.  Yep, everyone welcome.  Just bring yourself and your camera.    Meeting up details to be announced later.  It will be on Anglesey somewhere.   :D

Hi all, just in case you could not find it Chrissy and I will be attending, if we can get accommodation and health permitting.

If we do we will possibly come Thurs night to do South Stack Friday and join up with you for the evening meal.

Nothing is set in stone yet but we will try our hardest to make it.

Mind you we might feel out of place with a super tog and a mega tog.   ;)

No Dave, we haven't.

What time do you expect to get there?

I know its a long drive for you ......its about 135 miles for us so I reckon a pub lunch en route and arrive about 3pm...ish

Sheryl says check in is after 4pm so I suppose we'll have to kill some time with a pint.......my shout !

EDIT: Ian /Les are not staying over , they plan to come for the day on Saturday (He has to work Sunday!)

ps Thanks for the call mate

Hi Kev.  I've booked the evening meal for the Sat night.  7.30PM  I hope you both can get..... :)  If you fancy it Jim and Dave,  we can all go out for a pub-meal Fri night at Table,  table which is the Premier Inn eatery.  If you like, I can book that too coz they do get busy.   :)

Hi Jim and Dave.  Not heard a word from Alison since Fuji went down.......    I will book Table table for 6 of us then.  7PM OK for you?  It's about 1 1/2 miles from where you are kipping.   :D

Hi all, just to clarify my last post.

Thanks for the helpful pointers. (Top and Tail, Travel lodge)

We will get there Thursday night and do something on Friday, it is then quite possible we will attend the Friday meal.

On Saturday we will join you at RSPB Conwy, and be at the Saturday meal.

There is accommodation available it's just a matter of finding something less costly than the Ritz, or one week in the Algarve.

See you soon.

Kevin and Chrissy.

Hi Kev.  I'd better book a bigger table then....... :)  Good luck in finding accn, we have a spare room but it does cost more than the Ritz    :D  Saturday is a trip to RSPB South Stack,  we can do Conwy on the Sunday if ya like.  We'll see how it goes.  See you soon (we hope)

Hello Peter.  How nice to hear from you.  Not this year so far but it can easily be arranged.........  I have no time to arrange another one THIS year but I'm up to it sometime during next year.  Best when the weather is nice of course.  Give me a nudge Peter when you are over on this Island.  All the best to you on yours.   :)

I'd love to meet up with you all but due to my Ferrari not having any road tax and my Helicopter having a flat tyre i'm afraid it won't be possible on this occasion  :P

Looks like you're all in for a great weekend next week so, I am sure all those not attending will expect to see some FANTASTIC photos, as usual, when you return.  :)) :)) :))

Just make sure you all have fun (which I'm sure you will) and stay safe.       :)

So sorry we can't join you for this one.  We have been to the Island once - to get a closer look at the Hawks at RAF Valley. Not the birds Steve has in mind for next weekend.  Just to add an idea to his list of places though - we loved Penrhyn Castle.  If 'an enormous 19th century fantasy neo-Norman castle in spectacular surroundings' appeals to you this is the place to go. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/penrhyn-castle/
But whatever you do I'm sure you'll have, not just a great time - a MASSIVE time!   - Sue & Philip
