Both of our children love the outdoors from parks to beaches to the garden. And I’m a big fan of going for walks to get moving. So we enjoyed wrapping up and getting out and about between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Here are the top walks and places to visit we enjoyed in Twixmas 2016.
Swansea Bay Beach
We spent Boxing Day morning on Swansea Bay beach. It’s a long beach with views over to the Mumbles and the children loved tearing up and down it. They also made sand angels much to my amusement. Soggy trousers all round.
Roath Park has been a favourite of mine since I was a student at Cardiff University. It’s now one of our children’s most loved parks. They love the lake and the playground and it has flat sections that make it a great destination for scooter and bike rides. It was bustling with families when we visited on 27 December.
Ogmore-by-Sea in the Vale of Glamorgan is one of our most loved destination for a family walk. Its rugged landscape, views of Porthcawl and beaches make it a popular destination for walkers and surfers alike. We went there for a stroll on 28 December and the children loved exploring the beach and watching the groups of surfers catching waves.
