Cei Newydd







So, where better for a spot of photography than a day trip to New Quay West Wales?!!
I have been going to New Quay in summer since I was a little girl (ice-cream and jellyfish/dolphin spotting), then again as a teenager (wine drinking, running around barefoot, foolery) and now again, as an adult - somewhat. This time was a little more sophisticated, but so much more touristy. We all sat on the grass overlooking the harbour and beach eating ice-cream and giggling at the overexcited puppy that insisted on clambering all over my boyfriend and at my grandma dripping ice-cream down her skirt. After this, my boyfriend and I took a stroll up to the car boot sale, situated in the car park at the very top of New Quay, where I purchased a gemstone charm bracelet for a mere £1.50. We walked past Dylan Thomas' favourite watering hole, an array of flora and fauna and an abundance of very excited, ice-cream covered, bucket and spade carrying children. This was followed by a lunch at The Hotel Penwig, my favourite pub, and a wander down the pier that my best friend and I used to swim from, weaving through the boats on the mooring and back again. All in all, it was a lovely summers day!

Picnic in the sun



The sun pokes its head out from behind a cloud and the whole of swansea is sent into a frenzy; me included. I couldn't have thought of a better way to spend my sunshine filled Thursday than to head down to three cliffs bay for a picnic with my boyfriend and his mandolin. When I was younger, my mum used to make picnics and take me and my little brother out for the day, and so, this is one of my favourite things ever.
