Our Subaru XV Weekend Camping Adventure- Part Two.

A couple of weekends ago we had our first camping experience as a family when (I say camping but we cheated and went for a more ‘luxury’ option!) to Pembrokeshire in South West Wales.  I posted some photos last week, but I took so many as usual that I decided to split my posts in to two parts.

Here is a little more of what we got up to…

I *may* have prettied up our tent with these super cute lanterns from The Little Things.

We decided to go to South Wales because Mr E used to holiday in Wales a lot as a child, and we heard the beaches were beautiful.  We googled ‘Britain’s best beach’ and it came up with Barafundle Bay, and then when Lucy and her little family then posted about their adventure there, our minds were made up.  It didn’t disappoint, it was absolutely beautiful and because we went late in the afternoon, it was practically deserted.  For those thinking of going there, you have to walk over the cliff to get there, it’s probably a good 3/4 of a mile walk up some steps and hills, but once you are there it’s 100% worth it.

So worth the climb- how beautiful.

‘You better give me that spade soon Daddy.’

This girl is an actual liability when it comes to sand- she gets it EVERYWHERE.  Whereas Mads was never fussed when she was a baby, LL just wants to eat it and put it places she isn’t supposed too!

No trip to the seaside would be complete without some competitive sandcastle building.  Obviously.

We sat and had dinner on the practically deserted beach.  Which was lovely bar the sandy sandwiches, which were a little crunchy.

She is still at that stage where she is ‘waddling’ – she’s getting faster on her feet every day but still holds out her hands to steady herself most of the time which is pretty cute.

Sisterly sandcastle building.

The next few photos are basically all of LL prompting Mr E to say ‘You are aware that we have more than one child?!  It’s just the light was so nice and she was sitting still!

Ahhh pretty light and a baby in romper shorts.  Perfect.

I love this photo of Mr E and LL.  He really is the best father I could ask for for my little ladies.

‘I have sand up my nose.’

‘If I am quick he won’t catch me and I can put some more up there.’

asubaruXVadventure23

‘Damn he caught me- let’s have a sulk.’

All in all it was a fantastic weekend, and I am glad we had such a memorable first camping experience.  I am still definitely not sold on the idea of full camping just yet, but glamping suits us just fine!
