It’s September time and the autumn winds are in the air. It feels as though we are about to make the transition seasonally, yet again. It’s time to stock up the firewood pile, pull out those marino base layers and get the rain jackets and hats out of storage boxes. Theres one last month of good weather though, and why not make it count with some camping around the coast on Anglesey and the LLyn peninsula. Grab the camping kit, have a sort out and make some plans for a last camping trip before the winter sets in fully!
We are still seeing a handful of good mild days here in north Wales, still in the regions of 16c and down to 7c at night. More than warm enough for a camp still, in my books at least. With the sea at its warmer this time of year its holds the heat from the summer months and keeps the temps of the land higher in the later months.
This time if year I get an almost surge of energy to get more done, knowing fine well that the winter months when set in, they are quite distinguished by strong westerlies and torrents of welsh rain that keeps our lands so lush and green. So that past week I’ve been running more, hiking a bit and the thoughts of camping and bivi camping have been creeping into my mind. I don’t mind the weather, in fact I love cooler temps, I must have a more Norse bloodline. So with that said I vowed to get the camp kit out and head out for some late season camps.
I was going through my own listings of various campsites and some books I have, to decide where to head out to on our next mini adventure camping in north Wales. It dawned on me that I had to compile a list of some of the more awesome campsites on the coast, so I made one. Camping in north Wales is pretty beautiful, there are so many peninsular to explore, walk, climb, bike and swim that you are spoilt for choice. I know you guys will find it useful as its packed full of quaint campsites with spectacular views, one of my prerequisites in the short listing.
So by my calendar awe have month before the weather really turns..It used to be October the 31st when I ran the snowdon marathon, but the cycles of weather seem to have readjusted themselves to September 31st now. So that said make the most of the next four weeks and get some serious outdoor time in.
