  • Feeling: Tired but happy
  • Listening to: Nothing today
  • Watching: Fort Salem

Last day in Wales today, as we have to be out of the cottage by 9am(!) tomorrow morning and we’re going to take Mum home then head home ourselves.

We went down to Oxwich Bay on the Gower – it was quite a grey day, and much cooler than it has been most of the week, but that was really nice for me!

We walked the length of Oxwich Bay (about 3km each way) at a pretty leisurely pace with the kids, especially F, playing in the surf all the way

At the far end of the bay we had lunch and then me, D and F walked back along the beach the way we’d come, and Mum and B walked across the dunes instead.

When we got back to the car we’d promised F she could get into the sea properly rather than just paddling. F and B have both had swimming lessons at school, but they’ve done barely any swimming outside of that (which we really should do something about), but F was very keen to swim, and asked me to help her – she did a really good job and was really proud of herself (and I got my feet wet as well!).

We got back to the car and bought a cup of tea from the kiosk – and it started to rain – so we had the tea and some bara brith in the car before heading back to the cottage for homemade pizza for tea. A really lovely day.

Stay safe, stay strong x
