My last day of Summer

Bank holiday Monday was officially my last day of Summer. Working in a school I am so lucky to get all of the school holidays off but this summer holiday seems to have flown by in a flash. Nath and I have been saying we want to take Ava to the beach this year, having not had a holiday abroad and it really feels like we left the best until last.

We decided to go to Barmouth which is over an hour away from us, lovely sandy beaches and great fish & chips. You couldn't ask for more! When we arrived after some traffic delays I thought we may have been a little ambitious, venturing to the beach on a hot, sunny bank holiday, but once we were parked up we found a lovely little corner of the beach and were set for the day.

It was such a beautiful day, we were so lucky. I sat & watched Nath and Ava build sandcastles and thought back to the last time we took her to Barmouth. She was so little! I kept think of how the next time we come we'll have two children with us and it was such a strange feeling. After some more paddling and collecting seashells with me, we decided to take a walk down to the little harbour front. There are a few lovely restaurant and cafes and a gorgeous ice cream parlour.

We of course had to take a stop at the funfair first where Ava had her fill of all of the rides.

Knickerbockers Ice Cream Parlour is amazing! They have every flavour you can imagine (even a Minion one?!) I'll definitely have one of their ice cream sundaes next time. I went for a red velvet cake batter ice cream while Ava went for her usual chocolate.

We then had one last play on the beach before I queued for what felt like an hour for some fish & chips! Crazy I know but it was honestly so worth it. You can't go to the beach and not have fish & chips!

We didn't leave the beach until it was past Ava's bed time and I had work the next day but we wouldn't have changed anything, we had such a wonderful day. I want to come back to Barmouth every Summer and create lovely memories for Ava and our new baby.

Is there anywhere that you love to visit year after year?
