These images were taken a year ago but I’ve only now had time to get around to writing the post itself. I have a few articles of events from last year that I desperately need to write up. Please bare with me as I go through them all.

Mumbles is a headland sited on the western edge of Swansea Bay on the southern coast of Wales and one of my favourite places to visit in Wales. On a sunny day it’s absolutely gorgeous and a fantastic place to take the children if you want a cheap day out. The park area is always busy during the summer time as well as the crazy golf area.

Of course you cannot visit The Mumbles without visit the Cafe Play Mumbles which boasts a cute tiny bowling alley on it’s top floor. I remember having a party here when I was a young child. It’s soo much fun. They also have arcade games on the bottom floor as well as a fish and chip shop outside.

Speaking of food there are some amazing cafes, restaurants and pubs in the Mumbles area. The most famous eatery in Mumbles is probably Verdi’s which is located on Mumbles Pier. I cannot go to Mumbles without visiting Verdi’s before leaving. Neither can my mother. They have an array if sugar splendour on offer. You will probably find it difficult to choose.

One of the best things about Mumbles is the fact that most of their stores are independent so you will never find the product anywhere else. Also the Art Galleries specify in local work. I wish Cardiff did more of this, especially in their Galleries and museum’s. It always to find brand new artists with brand new work.

As my memories recalls this was a lovely day out. Cold, but pleasant. I was still in a relationship when I took these and I remember we found a hidden surfers paradise next to the Mumbles area. I cannot remember what it’s called but when I do I’ll go back and takes some images for you all!
