Camping in Wales

During the Easter holidays earlier this year, Jake and I decided to take a short break to Wales. Other than Australia the summer before, this was our first 'abroad' holiday. It was perfect. We had an amazing view with a lovely beach and amazing blue lagoon just a walk away. I really do miss waking up to the beautiful sunrise against the spectacular hills facing he campsite! 
We were there for three days and two nights which was just perfect -not too long but long enough to see everything. The first day was spent exploring what Wales had to offer. We went into the local village on a hunt for a camping shop as we didn't have the extension cord we needed for the electricity. On the way back, we found ourselves on the local beach. It was gorgeous. We could just make out our tent upon the hills facing us.
We were awoken early the next morning by the sunlight shining through and the sound of birds singing along. As we got out the tent, thinking it was just going to be an average cold day in England, we were pleasently surprised with an amazing view. The sun was rising beautifully right behind the hills looking down at us. It was breath-taking. 
The second day was spent driving around to see what we could find. We drove as far as we could one way before returning to the local village we had visited the day before. We were pointed in the right direction and soon found ourselves exploring through the hills in search for the blue lagoon. 
The remainder of the day was spent chilling at the campsite. We had got a bat and ball set from the local shops that occupied us for most of the afternoon. The sun soon came out and it got too warm to be playing games so we climbed as high up as we could and enjoyed the view until dusk. It was so peaceful up there. 
We woke up early again the next morning expecting another beautiful sunrise, however we were highly disappointed. We had planned to spend the whole day on the beach but instead of a great view, we were greeted by a sky full of mist and low clouds covering the hills that once looked over the campsite. Instead we decided to make an early start at our long journey home. Although cut short, this was still one of my favourite get-aways. It truly was perfect.
