Burry Port

Well the weather was bright and sunny so decided to go off somewhere today, and headed for Llanelli for a flying visit to the shops, just a couple of things I wanted, their Tesco is much better than ours, as I've mentioned before! Had a bite to eat at you know where, and then went along the coast to Burry Port to take Emma on the sands. It's been very windy though today, so not what you'd call hot, still needed a sweater or jacket on. Anyway, a good time was had, apart from it seems to be my week for getting stuff on my t-shirt. I queued up with Emma at the ice cream van, had a cone with chocolate sauce, and as he handed it to me, the wind blew loads of it all down my front! His bloody ice cream wasn't frozen enough, it was a load of slop! I had to wipe it off best I could and then zip up my fleece so I didn't look a complete wally. Or so I thought. When I got back to the car eventually, I looked in the mirror and saw that I'd been walking around with tomato sauce on my cheek from the McDonalds! It was near my scar from the seagull though, so maybe people would have assumed it was dried blood! haha.

The sad bit of the day was the other seagull though, I couldn't get anywhere near it. Poor thing. Also stuck in a queue of traffic for ages, then an ambulance came screaming past, when we finally got to the hold up, there'd been an awful accident, two cars smashed to pieces, one ended up in a garden. We were diverted by the police all round the back of the houses, through a park and then back out on the main road. Nasty.


He never moved in the 20 minutes I was walking around. He's broken his foot by the looks of it. :(











Cosy, three together! Not sure if one is a different species, has green wings and not black? Maybe m/f difference?

It's a 6-spot Burnet! We looked it up last night during chat! They have green wings when they are newer, the ones with the black wings would be older.
