Thank you for all the get well wishes. I am a lot better.
This was where we were Friday evening and it was lovely
On the horizon are the houses and our B&B where we stay each time I come back to the town where I was born and brought up.
Nell played 'fetch' on this beach Friday evening till she was worn out.
And we walked for a mile or two just taking in the views across the beach out into the sea. I collected some shells and pieces of sea smoothed coloured glass, still a little girl at heart looking for treasures!
The dunes are famous.. as it was here that the film 'Laurence of Arabia' was filmed! But I remember them for another reason. Just out of sight is Gorwelion House.
Where as a girl guide I stayed many a weekend and it was on these dunes we practised our semaphore! We had to be within shouting distance of each others' groups to shout what our message was supposed to be! We'd run up and down till we were breathless and had such a good time. Was it really 50 odd years ago I did all that?
Such happy memories, I wonder where those girl guides are now? And do they remember the dunes at Newton in Porthcawl with affection too?Chris xx
