More of our trip to Aber and more goodbyes


Can we just take a minute to look at the view for a second?


Wilf looks like he's been crying in these pictures with my dad, he wasn't he was just really really tired. Which is what happens when you refuse to go to sleep ALL DAY and don't drop until sometimes 11pm..boy was I tired, especially with the 5.30am seagull alarm clocks too.

Looking moody and grumpy getting rained on at the beach.
I love this shot below, family band album cover?


I love Bristol but I sometimes yearn for backdrops like this..


Unfortunately it rained for most of our trip in Aber but it didn't stop Wilf from enjoying the beach, we literally had to drag him away anytime it was time to leave.

If you are visiting Aberystwyth (and you should) you must take the cable car up to the top Constitution Hill and whilst you're there visit the Camera Obscura. The buildings have been re-done since I lived there and they even have bowling up there now. I spent a lot of time as a teen on Constitution Hill but this was only the second time I'd ridden the cable car, Wilf of course loved it. We had a cake and coffee and the top but it was so breezy we didn't stay long. So so worth it for the view though.

My dad gave Wilf a magnifying glass for exploring all the hidden treasures the beach had to offer, in the shot above they had just found a crabs claw. It's funny the things you take for granted seeing when you lived on the coast but are a new and novel experience for a city child. If I'm honest Wilf would probably love living by the seaside but I can't get on with not being by the hustle and bustle of city life.

p.s I still have a few more pics to share, I'm slowly learning to be more selective but trips away still seem to end up in around three posts!

It is a stunning view! It always seems so strange to me to see a town behind a beach though; the bit of Devon that I grew up in has the towns tucked up behind a harbour and usually an estuary too; the beaches are a lot wilder - and with good reason if you ever see them in winter; it's funny how the different angles of the coast effect what we build and where!

We are off to Aber this weekend for the Big Tribute Festival! And yes, just gorgeous, gorgeous views.

I love these photos! I have never been to Aberystwyth but this post makes me want to go now!x

You've done a cracking job of making me want to go. I had my holiday fingers burnt with North Wales and Snowdonia a few years back on a very unpleasant trip, and am keen to get back into the Wales (one is quarter Welsh!) and get my 25% Welsh hands dirtier!

Absolutely gorgeous photos. I always fancied Uni there until I realised how long it would take to get home - apparently there's a really good pub to student ratio though?? I bet it'll be strange for you to not go back there again. When I go to near where my Grandpa lived (where we spent a lot of time) I always drive along to his house, it feels so much like home. xx

I love your photos so don't ever worry about the amount of them. I think I was taken to Aberystwith on a family holiday when I was really small and therefore don't remember much apart from the caravan we stayed in and my red shoes which I adored at the time (all the important things - ha!).

First of all I just want to say I really love your red dress - you look lovely and second of all - how small is Emma Bunton - just look at those heels!!! I also love her argos range - very cute and stylish. Seriously how exciting to interview her and I am so glad you had a good time unlike last year which sounded like a complete nightmare

Haha I know what you mean about too many photos for your posts, I do the same, and regularly have to split into parts. These are gorgeous photos, it looks like a beautiful place. I love the photos of Wilf with your Dad. x

Bridget said...

Beautiful photos!

Adele Jarrett-Kerr said...

I swear there's a Constitution something or other in Bristol too... I love the dress you're wearing on the beach. Such a lovely colour.

laura redburn said...

aww, that tired wilf photo is so sweet. i hope he's sleeping better now? and WOW at that long shot of the beach area!

Laura Rocksteady said...

I love all of these beautiful photos, especially as they seem to be filled with emotion and sentiment. So happy to hear that Wilf loved his time there even though it rained and how sweet about the magnifying glass :)

Agata Pokutycka said...

it is great to find out hidden gems sometimes, isn't it?

Jess@AlongCameCherry said...

Love the last photo, all of them are fab. I have to say I have no idea where abouts in Wales it is but I definitely want to do a tour one day so will have to visit. I would love to live by the sea! x

Wild & Grizzly said...

I love all these photos and my favourite is the close up of hands and a magnifying glass. Such a precious capture of childhood. x

Claire said...

I love the photos. The telescope one should definitely be a family band album cover. You should make a record cover mock up for Madog. :-) x

fritha strickland said...
