We used to grab our buckets and spades and walk up to the beach in the summer and make sand castles, while my mum and aunty tried to catch a tan. We took day trips out to Portmadog, Barmouth and Portmeirion and complained: 'Are we there yet?!'. The scenery was something I never appreciated as a child, but now I'm older and I have a new camera to try out, I was snapping away, enjoying the blue skies and scenery.
Harlech Village and Beach
Portmeirion Village and Restaurant
Easter Sunday, we had booked a 3 course meal at the Portmeirion Hotel's Restaurant. Portmeirion is one of my favourite places in Wales, it's brightly coloured buildings set into the sea front were created as a set for the tv programme, The Prisoner. It's a place of beauty, the architecture juxtaposed with the natural scenery makes for awe inspiring views.
This weekend has given me the opportunity to appreciate the calm, the quiet and the sea air. I feel refreshed....
