Started by: Platty (1341)

Anne's going to Buxton, Jathbee's going to Keswick, Billinge B's going to his abode on wheels, Tonker's going to Spain, Plummy will no doubt be off on his bike all over the north west (not all at the same time). Where is everyone going?

I'm going to Glasgow on Saturday night, staying over then, Picking my Son and family up at the airport and bringing him here, Then its trips and tours all over the UK until me wallet's empty, ( that won't take long ) Then the credit card gets a bashing, I filled the car up today before they put it up again,
Happy times,

Plummy: Ever so good luck. They've been blocking the fuel sites in Scotland, so keep filling up. Is he flying in to Glasgow? Enjoy it, life is extremely short.

You can't beat Llandudno for a short break. MUCH BETTER than Blackpool. Thank goodness the bay hasn't got a sandy beach otherwise it would be inundated.. In saying that the other side of Landudno on the River Dee, does have a nice sandy beach with plenty of cockles<g> Just been watching a 3 part programme about Llandudno Pier. Got me yearning for a short break there

Going to Newquay in Wales in September. And hoping to make it to Benidorm in September too. It will be a first for me, never really fancied it but friends can be very persuasive. And hopefully a few day trips in between.
Good thread Platty.

I won't have time to travel as we have four sets of visitors from the UK between July and September. A queue thanks to Covid. Hopefully a bit of pampering in Mexico before Xmas. then back to the Reef in February and the cycle starts again.

Tonks: Are you going to organise an outing for WW to Chester Zoo?

For his birthday I bought my grandson a subscription to Chester Zoo. It's what he asked for, he's 7. He sponsors the 2 toed sloth and, besides lots of other stuff, he's got his name on the plaque for a year on their housing. He's very happy.

Bangor is a lovely place. Worked in Belfast in 1996 and 1998 and really enjoyed touring N.Ireland. Lots to see.

No problem about saying where you are going, it's saying when that's the issue..

My trip to Keswick was very enjoyable. A lovely little place. We found a very nice, eat in chippy, which served alcohol. The fish and chips were lovely, the wine not so It was called The Keswickian Just in case anyone visits there.

jathbee: I was in Keswick last year, I felt, as in most of the Lake District now, that the place had declined somewhat. I remember being there years ago over a Christmas week, it was freezing, but it was almost magical.
Kendal is another place, but walking in the surrounds of Kendal, the two castles, the river, is quite nice.
Keswick has a superb bookshop.

Just booked a couple of nights in Waterton which is around three hours south. If you sail on the Lake you cross the border with the USA. Famous for having the Prince of Wales Hotel. A very nice place.

It was a first time in Keswick for me Platty, so no idea what it was like a few years ago, so maybe you're right.
