This is a brief summary of my amazing holiday in Wales with my friends. These photos were taken on a disposable camera, I've recently become very fond of them as they make you think a bit more about what you're taking a photo of, rather than snap away on a digital camera (which I also did) and I also really like the way they turn out, even if some of them are grainy or blurred. I took a photo of the sunset eat day except for day 5 because it was too cloudy, but for the other four days there were stunningly colourful sunsets and we had a perfect view! We also brought with us a video camera and caught snippets of each day (and night) but it's taking forever to edit into one video!
Day 1: Arrived and settled in, played guitar and chilled.
Day 2: Exploring the beach in the local town, didn't expect it to be so sunny and so busy! The tide had gone out for a mile so we walked as far as we could and tried to avoid all the jellyfish, then chilled out on the sand dunes. Finished the day with a small BBQ and marshmallows!
Day 3: Went on The Panorama Walk, the shortest walk we could find which took us up a hill and overlooked the estuary and harbour. We could see the tide going out and turning a turquoise blue while eating a picnic in the searing heat at the highest point. When we returned to the town we all got ice cream and watched the greedy gulls trying to steal chips. Had dinner out at a pub.
Day 4: I convinced my friends to try crab fishing in the harbour, we caught about 9 crabs and then let them go down the slope, watching them race each other. We rewarded ourselves with ice cream and milk shakes from a very colourful ice cream parlour. One friend had to leave early so after a quick visit to the tiny fairground and saying good bye, the rest of us headed back to the beach. We then had the crazy idea to get up at 4am and go to the beach to watch the sunrise, crazy idea but I'm so glad we did it!
Day 5: The day we swarmed the markets and shops (my hands were too full to take photos during the day).
Day 6: Tidied up and left pretty quickly, and then it was a gruelling 6 hours drive home.
I think I forgot to mention that my grandparents own this tiny cottage, so I've been there a few times every year. It meant I was able to plan this holiday with activities in mind and it was pretty exciting just having friends there rather than family.
** Please note: I am now on holiday with very limited internet, therefore I will be unable to reply to comments and emails. I'll be back on the 25th. **
