Sadly Dont think I can be there for this one, but Bull Bay is a beautiful little village between Amlwch and Cemaes Bay. Excellent sea fishing there too!

Hi Carol

235 miles? Just a stones throw away.
Four and a half hours drive through beautiful country side down to warmer climbs.

Is this enough to make you change your mind? ;-)

Heya Mr Happy

Good to have you on board.

Sorry about the nautical term; Just got back from the Liverpool Tall Ships shanty weekend.

The numbers of people coming to the Bull Bay Folk Weekend are building up nicely.

All we need now is an Indian Summer.

Heya John

Maybe not Indian Summer but not looking too bad. Occasional light rain with sunshine. Day & night Wind and temperature in the teens.

Stay happy!

Colin

"How!" John

Maybe occasional "Squaw(ll)s" and not the time to go "Running Bare" especially with my "Paw-nee" but "Chief(ly)" the "Spirit in the Sky" say "Shy-Ann" get "Pale Face" in this weather.

No! only kidding, I speak with "Fork Tongue"

The Bull Bay Folk Weekend will see a fabulous Indian Summer and we will all end up with "Red Skins".

I think this calls for some weekend music from across the pond.

Every time I look at the Ten Day Forecast it has one of the days horribly wet - it seems to be a random different day each time. I looked on Mon, it said 48mm rain on Wed week. looked yesterday, said wet on Sun, today it gives a dryish weekend but 51 mm rain on Tues.

So I guess thats a "changeable and unpredictable" then.

Enjoy it, those who are going.
