The Mumbles

Had a great day out with Barry, Christine and Cylene and not forgetting Misty and Emma (as if..)

I set off at 8.30 this morning, got to their place at Neath, and then we went in their camper to Swansea, Singleton Hospital Car boot sale, having parked in a car park on The Mumbles beach and then walked up the hill to the car boot. Passing as we did Singleton Park, where I took the pics of the lake and geese.

The weather was fantastic, not a cloud in the sky all day, brilliant sunshine, what a lovely change for us to get the best weather down here. The car boot was interesting, and saw the cute doggy in the t-shirt and asked his owner if I could take a photo, she proudly obliged.

We had ice creams and hot Welsh cakes (bang goes the diet AGAIN!) and then took the dogs for a run on The Mumbles sands. The tide was miles out, Emma's little face was all worried cos she couldn't even see the water! We found it eventually though, but the sand was a bit squelchy. Misty must've run about 6 miles, non-stop back and forth. After that we all got back in the camper and Barry drove to Aberavon beach, and we sat and looked at the sea, and waited for the queue to die down at the Chippy, but it never did, they must've done a mint today, the place was packed, apart from people wearing jackets (and not all I might add, there were a lot in t-shirts, but the wind was a bit nippy down here)you could have thought it was mid-Summer. We got our grub and sat on the wall and threw chips to the gulls. Poor Emma was in the van, but I saved her a few!

Finally left Neath to come home at 5.15 and got home just after 6, longest I've been out for ages, and was relieved that Diddy boy was okay when I got home, I've been letting him stay out in the garden for quite some time now on nice days, he seems quite happy, but I still worry about him.
