Seaside Shenanigans and a Retro Draft Excluder

Hello, hello.
We enjoyed a lovely bank holiday Monday.
We packed up the car and headed to the coast.
My daughter loves crab fishing so we started with that.
Here are some that we caught and released.
My daughter like me loves animals and insisted on holding them, they must have liked her too because they didn't nip her, only me while releasing them hehe.
We went to Trefor a small village with a harbour and beach in a lovely part of Wales, on the llyn peninsula.
It's actually quite a special place for my partner and I, it's the place we fell for each other.

When we arrived although it felt warm, the sea mist was in and made the mountains look quite eerie.

But it soon cleared here is my partner and daughter crab fishing over the harbour wall.

The mist heading out to sea and over the mountains.

When the mist cleared we were left with a sunny warm day to enjoy.

Boats down on the beach.

A tractor ready to pull in a returning fishing boat.

The magic pat, that makes the perfect sandcastle.

Beautiful scenery. Don't you just love the smell of the sea?

I've been making some draft excluders today for the craft sale.

Did I mention the craft sale is next weekend! I'm very nervous...just hope it goes well and makes some pennies for the charity.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on the last post.
Hope that you have a lovely weekend what ever you're doing.

  9. Great pictures. It is so much fun to spend time on the coast. I love the sounds of the ocean as well as the smell (as long as it is in not the stink of dead fish)! Your draft excluders are beautiful. I hope you have a successful craft sale.
