Miles of Golden Sands

Each year at this time,  I return to my home town. I go to put flowers on my mother's grave, my two aunt's and my grand parent's..we usually rent a cottage or house but this time, we stayed in a  B&B that accepted pets.. so Nell came too

The B&B over looked Newton Beach which is a mile from the town of Porthcawl, where I was born and grew up.

Beach Road

It was more than just comfortable, great comfy bed, en suite and plenty of hot water for our morning showers, great big soft white towels and great cooked breakfasts. DH enjoyed a full English each morning I had tomato and bacon omlette, beautifully cooked. The bacon was welsh thick cut bacon and very tasty.
Nell loved chasing the ball on the beach and I loved watching!
We met up with my old school friend on friday evening, someone that I have been friends with for 60 years!
And then Sunday we met with DS2 and my DIL, who live in West Wales for a super Sunday dinner in one of the big hotels and then a stroll along the front prom to a cafe where we had coffees and icecreams.
A very nice long weekend, we feel we have had a holiday which indeed we have.
Oh to live by the sea again!

I "googled" Porthcawl and see it's right in between Cardiff and Swansea! My friend Cathy & I will be staying with a friend in Newport for 3 days & are going to see about a day trip to Swansea; therefore, we'd go right by there. We will try to stop and go for stroll on the beach. It looks absolutely beautiful - what a place to grow up in!
