a day trip to penarth

penarth! i’ve missed you. it’s been a long time and i’m sorry i neglected you.

i’ve been meaning to have a proper look around penarth and the beach for such a long time now. i’d been a couple times in the past, but only flying visits so i didn’t have any real opportunities to take it in. it’s so lovely there!

i lucked out and had decided to go on the nicest/sunniest day of the week. i mostly wanted to go to the sea, but i also wanted to check out the charity shops as there’s quite a few there, and you know how i love my charity shops. i found a couple of nice things and i am most definitely going to make some repeat visits when i have some more money.

    I have to say I do love Penarth – one of the nicest places to visit near Cardiff and I always like to treat myself and the little man to some chips on the front (and maybe an ice-cream as well). Love all of these beautiful photos and what a stunning day to visit

      it really is so lovely. i almost didn't get the chips but i was sooo hungry, and didn't have the energy to walk back into the town and get some proper food. and thank you! the weather was so perfect that day.
