A weekend walk in Barmouth

After 5 days away in Wales, we got back from Barmouth this afternoon after a 2 hour drive home. I thought I would share with you some photos of our first day, when we went for a walk with the dogs. I forget how lovely Wales can be, and how lucky we are to have it right on our doorstep - it can be just as good as going abroad when the sun is shining. Barmouth is a town in north-western Wales, situated on the estuary of the River Mawddach.

So on the first day we decided to do a long-ish walk with the dogs to tire them out a bit. We walked down the harbour in Barmouth and climbed aboard a boat to cross the estuary towards Fairbourne (which only cost us £2 each). Sailing on a tiny wooden boat with the dogs was a bit of an ordeal - Labradors love swimming, so we had to keep them on short leads to make sure that they didn't jump out!

On the other side of the estuary, the views over to Barmouth were lovely.

We walked along the beach for a bit, letting the dogs splash in the water, before coming out onto a field, which still had amazing views over to Barmouth.

We eventually reached the Barmouth bridge and crossed all 0.5 miles of it, so we basically came round in a circle.

All that walking meant that it was time for an ice-cream at Knickerbockers! This is one of the best places for ice-cream ever, and definitely a must-visit if you ever go to Barmouth.

The only way I can get a decent photo of the dogs is when they're distracted by food...

I very much enjoyed having some time away with the family, but it's also nice to be back in my own bed with WiFi so that I can continue to watch 13 Reasons Why!
Go wherever you feel most alive.
