Abersoch - Part 2

I'm back with another instalment of the wonderous Welsh adventure!

When we went for a wander down to the beach at the end of the first day some of the scenery that greeted us was fantastic...

Gracie busied herself running along the beach. Kai, Harry and Sam were more adventurous and started exploring the rocks...

Nathaniel on the other hand, being a junior entomologist, had to see what bugs he could find - he seemed incredibly pleased to find this woodlouse which must have been 20-30mm in length

Anyway, after some grub we retired to our various bedrooms and in the morning we took another trip to the beach for some sun, sea and sand. Unfortunately, the sea had already been claimed by some rather less pleasant holidaymakers

This, apparently, is a moon jellyfish. They have a very mild sting, but we weren't to know that and given that there were literally thousands of them (think Michael Caine in Zulu but with the Zulu's replaced by jellyfish) on the water's edge we didn't take any risks. Undeterred, we had a good play in the sand and the kids seemed to enjoy themselves

It's safe to say that a fun day was had by all. After eating our tea outside we went back to the pub where some of the adults decided to enjoy alcohol responsibly. We went back to the house where they proceeded to enjoy alcohol irresponsibly. Okay, I admit that I'm just jealous because I can't drink anymore! 

After a fine night's sleep we all arose refreshed and ready to face another day (*snigger*). A trip to Criccieth was in order and that will form the subject of my next exciting (stop yawning already!) post. For now, I'll leave you with this view of the harbour...
