Why Anglesey Is So Special To Me

Beaumaris

Hi Wil


Out of the times on Anglesey, by far the most special was in May 2005 when myself and my now wife were in Anglesey for the Bank Holiday Weekend Festival but were struggling to find accommodation with everywhere being fully booked.

I decided to knock on the door of what looked like a normal house in the town of Beaumaris in a street chosen completely at random, just to enquire if they knew of any B+B or guest houses nearby. I didn’t have any inkling I was in Margaret Street and the lady who answered said she used to do accommodation but had now retired. Anyway she offered us a room which we accepted.

After leaving our luggage we went into Beaumaris for a meal and spotted the sign at the end of the road which read Margaret Street which made my spine tingle.

My own dear now deceased mother was named Margaret and I genuinely felt she had guided us to this street and guest house. The house itself had no signs or boards outside and it was the first and only house I knocked on. It was very surreal but more was to follow in this very special weekend. My girlfriend and I found ourselves the next morning on the beautiful beach at Rhoscolyn, and as it was very early it was deserted as we walked hand in hand in the warm sunshine.

It was true paradise and would have been extra special if we had known my girlfriend was pregnant with our first child. Spotting an odd looking pebble, I picked it up and still have it today which reminds us of that very special weekend in May 2005.

Now with a wife and two children, we have not long returned from this beautiful island after a fabulous caravan holiday just outside of Benllech. We toured the whole island and following visits to its wonderful beaches of Llanddona Beach, Benllech, Rhoscolyn, Trearddur Bay , Rhosneigr and many others.
We will certainly be returning to this very unspoilt TRUE GEM.

Best Wishes
John

Hi John

Thank you very much for that and I am so delighted that you have found Anglesey again to reveal to your children to create memories as a foundation for their future happiness.

I believe that our departed family and friends reside in our unconscious minds as the values that guide us, as direct instructions and in our intuitions. Your children will pick this up from you and their mother.

So, it’s reassuring to realise that parents and friends continue to be with us.

Joy and Happiness to You and your Family
Wil
