Llangwnnadl revisited


DSC_1821-EditWe had a lovely week away with Jayne, Paul and the kids on the Llyn peninsula in North Wales as part of the kids’ Easter holidays.  We stayed in a cottage really near to where Jayne and Paul used to go on their holidays with their grandparents, Mum and cousins when they were young so it was a bit of a trip down memory lane for them and a week to be off and explore for the rest of us.

Here are the highs and lows of the trip… This list was compiled with help from everyone so represents a consensus of opinion rather than purely my own!

Biggest surprise – the holiday (as said by the kids who only found out on the morning that we left) and how good the cottage was
