Oh, for another holiday…

\Thursday afternoon, staring out of my office window, thinking about where I’ll spend a week this Summer… it’s got to be the seaside!

The last three trips have been fantastic, just right for the family. If you’ve got children, you’ll know what I mean here – if they’re happy, then so am I!!

What I really want is:

  • Somewhere that I can do a bit of beach fishing with my eldest son (who’s now 3 and discovering everything),
  • Maybe somewhere that I could ride my bike (I’ll get a couple of chances at most whilst I’m away so it needs to be close to the cottage and interesting)
  • Plenty of places to take the little ones (which means indoor and outdoor options)

My recent favorite has to be Instow (I stayed at the Anchorage ref 17468), a lovely seaside village. A nice beach & friendly pubs. I’m an holiday fisherman and went fishing for bass from the shore of Zulu Bank (what a name!!) which is just down the road – up to my waist in the sea and throwing the line across the tide, it’s great fun.

Last year I managed the marathon drive up to Skye . It’s worth it. Portree’s a cute little town and if you’re into the outdoors it’s hot. If you’d like to arrive calm and settled after a long drive with the children, I’d definitely recommend a portable DVD.

So, back to this year… I think I’ll try either Anglessey or somewhere close to Abersoch. I’ll let you know what it’s like.
