The Photo Gallery - Weekend

Should have left sooner; it was drifting towards noon before we finally got going. And the journey wasn't the best with the Bank Holiday traffic, and the constant squabbling in the back: but as soon as we reached the Gower and caught a glimpse of the sea, all that was forgotten.
The kids galloped down the sandy path to Rhossili Bay - we walked slowly behind, weighed down with beach trip essentials; savouring the sunshine and the warm sand beneath our feet.

Past the dunes for a first full blast of the crashing waves and the salty breeze.

What a day we had!
Paddling,


splashing,


kite-flying,


collecting shells,


and digging holes.


We headed back with tight happy faces and sandy seats; a quick stop for fish and chips and then Peace...as the kids slept...most of the way home.

The Gallery theme is The Weekend

    1. Can just imagine :) Sadly we didn't take Betty, a bit too far and too many hills for a day trip, but hopefully we'll get camping soon!

    1. We aren't so close really, but it's always worth the effort. Going to try to do more beach trips this summer...said that before though!

  9. I'm really impressed with your kite flying - that looks like a hard one to fly. I can't even do the normal one!
