A week in West Wales

We have been away for a week’s holiday in Saundersfoot West Wales..
It was a long way to go just over 284 miles and along the M25 and M4, so going last Friday morning it took us 7 ½ hours. Although we had a 40 minutes pit stop, it was very tiring.

Saundersfoot is a pretty sea side town and we were only two minutes from the beach and the town. It was very hilly and my little legs ached after a couple of days, but our accommodation was very comfortable so we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves.  There were some lovely little shops, one was a stitching and yarn and fabric one, an old fashioned haberdashery  and yes  I did augment my fabric stash! A super old fashioned sweet shop that sold the most yummy fudge and lots of knick knack shops. I bought myself two new tops and a new purse.

Some areas of the beach were dog friendly and Nell loved playing fetch with her ball. Although she is still reluctant to drop the ball when she comes back. She keeps going for quite a while, but the last time we played it was noticeable that she was slower running back, poor thing was tired.

We slept well being full of fresh sea air and tired legs as it was very hilly. But Nell did not! She cried nearly all night the first night and was awake most mornings at 5!!
In spite of me checking with the agents about a garden, it did not have one, so DH was taking her out when only Nell and the seagulls were awake! I have complained to the manager of the letting agents, as the advert for the property showed a garden. But as soon as we arrived there I recognised the
garden as being the house opposite! According to the manager, it was a view from the window, but it didn't say that and the advert showed a house with a garden. It seems they don't have to say it is not the property picture!! Have you ever heard of such rubbish? Here is DH happily paddling in the shallows... he and Nell did enjoy the sea! LOL

This morning we left at 7 and arrived back about 12:30pm ! So a good journey.. we both feel very relaxed and I am very glad to be home. I am dreading weighing in the morning but I do have 4 days before my Slimming group weigh in. (the fish and chips were very good! LOL)
Any way I am so glad to be home. The apartment where we stayed was very comfortable but home is best!!
Happy Days!

Those are some beautiful pictures, Chris. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. Good luck at the weigh in.... fish and chips are hard to resist, hehehe. We love them.

Sounds like a lovely break Chris. Nell looks like he had a good time!

Life is too short - have to enjoy the fish and chips when they are good! Holidays are the time when we are allowed to relax our eating plans.

Enjoy being home

I'm guessing Nell had a bath or two in that time!! Am I wrong?

Wales is so lovely, I will probably never go back in this lifetime, maybe in the next..

Great pictures. Fish & Chips by the sea are always the best. You will soon get back on track.

Sounds lovely! I'll try to remember the spot when I come over next time. Wales is #1 place to explore with England #2. :D
