For the latest bank holiday, Dan and I decided to head to the beach for a glamping weekend along Wales’ Caernarfon Bay at Aberafon Campground and say goodbye to summer in style. Our last camping foray up in the Lake District a few weeks earlier left us bone-chillingly cold and soaking wet from the nonstop 20+ hours of rain that started within an hour of us setting up camp, so we had our fingers crossed for warmer, dryer weather this go-round and we weren’t disappointed. The sun shone warm and bright on our second afternoon, the sunsets were breathtakingly gorgeous, the beach campfires nostalgic of my childhood in California, and the crashing sound of waves lulling us to sleep was peaceful.
We opted to bring our little dog Scooter along with us this time and he had such a blast on his first time camping in Wales! Lounging out in the sun, walking along the beach, scarfing down pizza crusts from the pop-up pizza oven at the campsite, exploring centuries old castles and ruins, and hogging half of my sleeping bag and cot; it was a summer holiday he’ll never forget!
