Barry Island | A day out on Sunday

I am someone that loves spending time with the people that I love. Even if we aren't doing much. At the weekend me and James' family went to Barry Island with James, his mum Lisa, his sister Millie, auntie Sarah and cousin Sophie. Just randomly and it was an amazing, but simple day. We didn't travel far to get there and it didn't cost us much. It just gave us more memories and a day that we will remember for a long time. I feel that days like that are super important. You don't need to spend loads of money and go to the other side of the world to enjoy yourself or to create something worth remembering. All you need is a great bunch of people or have that one person with you that you know you will have a great time with regardless of what you will be doing, and then decide what you want to do. Then poof you will have made a great memory.

Most Sunday's for me consist of me going home after being at James' then relaxing for the rest of the day. So going to Barry was a lovely change of pace and senary. Barry is only just over an hour away from where we live but it's by the beach and far enough to feel like we aren't in Cheltenham. In Cheltenham there isn't much to do there and you can't really do the things there like you can do in Barry.

We traveled down in the late morning and arrived in good time for lunch. Getting out of the car was hard as it was super windy and cold. Luckily we found a lovely cafe where we can sit in the warm and eat yummy food. The place was very full but we did find a space to sit down. I had a ham and cheese toasty, orange tango and chili crisps. I have to say I was pretty hungry by the time we got there so it was what I needed to fill the spot. Me and James finished our food first as it came first so we went to the arcade after whilst we wait for the others to finish. We used £2 to play on the 2p machines, considering £2 doesn't give you many 2p's it manged to go quiet far and we won a 5 points token which I have taken home as a souvenir. After that we went and met everyone else at the beach and Sophie was so excited bless her that she ran as soon as her feet touched the sand. Luckily Sarah brought a bucket and spade so that kept her occupied for a bit. She made a lovely sand castle and she found stones on the beach to decorate it. Millie made a mote around the castle, it looked good. It was just so lovely seeing how happy Sophie was at her first time to a beach. We spent a long time on the beach and then we went up the side of the cliff to see the beautiful view from up there. It was so windy at one point James moved from in front of me and I went flying back into my chair. It hurt, but it was pretty funny. We became very cold so we set off and headed back to the arcade and we played a lot of racing games. James won the tournament, Millie was the only one close enough to beat him. I was awful at the game, it was so much fun just having some family time I didn't mind. Even if loosing isn't very fun. We spent a long time there it was about half 4 and we decided to go back home. It was a great end to the day I think. Wouldn't of changed any of it for the world.























So as you can see we manged to fit a lot in, in one day. We didn't have to even go too far away from home. Making memories is super important to me. I find that they keep me going through everything especially the hard times. Just looking back at a happy memory helps to divert my mind into a happy place and then everything seems okay.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. See you next time for another.
