I’ve just got back from a fantastic weekend in North Wales. It’s a place we often went on holiday when I was growing up, swimming in the sea at Harlech or Fairbourne, climbing the rocks at Borth-y-Gest and exploring the rockpools at Llandanog.
This time I wanted to visit somewhere new. My parents came with us and we came back with lots of new family memories of North Wales. These photos were taken at beautiful Llanbedrog. I couldn’t help but take photo after photo, the place is just so picturesque, with its colourful beach huts, tree covered cliffs and bobbing boats. Even the approach to this beach is breathtaking; trees form a tunnel over a narrow lane, and a perfectly clear stream runs at the side of it down onto the beach, ready to be diverted by children armed with spades. I’m rather pleased with my many photos of this outing, although I’m fairly certain it’s impossible to take any bad pictures of Llanbedrog.
The day after this, we went to Morfa Nefyn which is also completely stunning. I was too busy swimming in the sea to take any scenic photos though, sorry. As I drove home the following day, glimpsing the mist covered grey hills through my windscreen wipers, my idyllic weekend of blue skies and sun dappled sea felt like something I’d dreamt up. Luckily I have these photos to remind me it really did happen.
