Last weekend we spent a few days stopping in Machynlleth, basically visiting all the beaches around. What can i say, I love the sea! Being a Gemini and an Air sign, I quite clearly didn’t get the memo…
We stopped at The Wynnstay, Machynlleth. We love charming hotels with old interior and plenty of character and this hotel was full of it: gorgeous beams and open fires.
When we arrived on Sunday, the sun was shining and being the sea obsessive I am, the draw of visiting Borth was too much: we checked in, dropped our bags in the room and headed straight out to the beach. When we arrived, it was so blustery but fab. I love being at the beach when it is windy. I used to come here during the summer holidays: Just look how gorgeous it is!
We spent an hour or so walking along here on Sunday. Meg was in her element, she loved paddling in and out of the sea and as it was so windy, she was forever running after the ball. #quickwaystowearoutabordercollie
On Monday as neither of us could remember whether we had actually been to Barmouth recently (our conversation about this confused me!), we decided to have a trip up there. It was a gorgeous drive with the sun shining the whole time. How lucky were we?! We went straight to the beach, obvs Meg loved this, we walked along the ‘other side’ of the harbour to sit down and throw the ball for Meg.
Paddling in and out of the sea – had her pigs been there, it would have been heaven for her. We then took a walk into town and stopped for an ice cream. End of september and we were sitting in the sun with an ice cream watching the world go by – does it get much better?! Yes, yes it does as we spotted an arcade across the road
Two penny push anyone…..? How much fun can you have with a tub of 2p’s – a lot if you are me and The Boy! Just before we left, I picked up the traditional fridge magnet (which if you are us – is basically all the places in Wales we have been…) and found the second BEST things – a kite! I was giggy with excitement. We’d already planned to go back to Borth, y’know just because, but now we had the THE BEST excuse.
Back to Borth
Although not as windy as Sunday, there was enough wind to fly our kite! Our heart soared with the kite – it was so much fun. We spent a fab hourish, swapping turns, throwing the kite up and trying to keep it airborne. So much fun!
It was great to have a few days away with The Boy and not do a great deal. The only demand we, sorry I, placed upon us was to make sure that we were back in our room to watch The Bodyguard. There would have been far, far too many spoilers about before we were home to watch it! Apart from that lazy breakfast, walks along the beach and fun with my favourites made this an amazing couple of days away. Cannot wait to book our next one.
Lots of love
