Week in Wales

From Wales
Rich and Clare very kindly invited us on holiday with them this year to a fantastic house in Mid-Wales. so last week we went with them and Steve and Kim.

We had a fantastic time, the house was right by the sea, evenings would be spend eating loads of fantastic food playing ring of fire or sing star watching the sunset over the sea.

Days were spent doing a variety of things, a great long walk in the hills, going down a cave, visits to Portmerion and Harlech Castle and even a day sunbathing on the beach. Then there was Steve's birthday where we decided to do a fancy dress in the reverse of our ages so I became 82 and Rich became 3!! Joe and Kim were able to swap ages with each other!

Due to us being away for Rich's 30th we decided to treat him to a day of fun whilst we we were on holiday. All did not quite go to plan, we had decided on mountain boarding as he is a fan of snow boarding and mountain biking - out the two together and see what you get! Unfortunately all the local centres to where we were staying we closed - boo so we had a mammoth drive to get there. We all got on he boards and had a few trial runs, soon after Rich sprained his ankle but he jumped back up and carried on. To break up the journey home we stopped for fish and chips on the sea front - a true British holiday!

British holidays always sound better than American vacations.

Wales is a lovely place to visit. I remember Harlech and Portmeirion. Hope you bought some of their lovely "china". We bought the "Botanic Garden" breakfast set while we were there. Also climbed Snowdon that year!
