A Little Trip to Wales

Southerdown Bay

Last week the girls and I spent four days camping in South Wales. We go to Wales quite a lot - we have family there - but this trip was different. Life changing, almost.

It made me realise just how much I miss being creative. I used to paint landscapes and driftwood and pebbles and I'm not sure at what point I gave it all up but I felt so inspired at the weekend that I've decided to start up again. I really need to do something just for me.

I also remembered why I have always wanted to live by the sea. IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL! And wild! And invigorating! And at the same time, so peaceful! And PERFECT. It won't be for a few years yet, but I'm determined to make my dream reality at some point and settle somewhere overlooking a wild and blustery beach.

This trip we camped in a place called Southerndown and explored lots of places locally. If you've not been to Southerndown Bay before, it is BREATHTAKING. I definitely left my heart there on this trip. Since we've been back I've been on RightMove and I'm totally in love with this house. Anyone want to buy it for me?

Here are a few pictures from our holiday xoxo
