Country Kids- A breath of the New Year

Exploring the new Eastern Promenade

Our first New Year’s Day in South Wales and friends introduced us to the tradition of clearing the cobwebs at Barry Island.

Tradition adopted this was my non-negotiable for this break, with the hubby juggling hospital visits and getting his mum’s flat ready for her return we have had a difficult time enjoying family togetherness.

And we could not have expected what a great remedy our new year would bring.Exploring the new Eastern PromenadeWith the Eastern promenade renovation complete it was fantastic to explore the beach huts and the typographic traversing wall. The little people loved exploring the letters, fossils, vehicles and shapes before the climbing effort began.Barry Island Traversing WallAs always, it is the simple things which create the memories and the favourite activity on the Eastern Promenade was standing by the wall as the waves crashed, enjoying the excitement as the spray caught us and others off guard.Barry Island

Instead we got the other special treat the children associate with Barry Island- a chippy tea!Chips on Barry Island PromenadeThe bar is well and truly set for 2015, adventures and mayhem are welcome here.

    This looks like a brilliant way to start your new year off. Barry Island is such a great family place and the colourful beach huts look so inviting for a great place to spend a day. It looks like the kids started their year off having plenty of fun and laughter and a day full of adventures. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.
