Easter holidays

Its Good Friday today but the Easter holidays are almost over. In the last two weeks eldest son has come home form university and now gone back again to revise for his exams at the beginning of May. We've had a great couple of weeks enjoying the lovely weather. The photographs that I'm sharing today are from a short trip to south Wales at the beginning of the holidays.

This is Oxwich Bay on the Gower peninsular which is a perfect beach for strolling along the waters edge.

The weather was so warm it seemed like summer rather than April.

On our second day we walked on Sugar Loaf hill near Abergavenny, same clear blue skies

although a bit cooler and windy at the top.

Signs of spring growth all around, bilberries just beginning to form,

leaves appearing on the trees in the valleys

and everywhere very cute welsh lambs.

I agree - the weather does seem more like summer than April, which is slightly worrying!
