We took a mini-break to Nolton, South Wales, and it was wonderful. I had never been to Wales before, and was very pleased with the south coast. The British coast is very different from the coast where I was brought up (Galveston, Texas) in just about every way except for the sand. The Texas water is about 80 degrees Farenheit, the temperature on the beach in the summer is always in the 90’s and I remember feeling sweaty in my bathing suit. Too hot out of the water and too hot in it! I find it funny looking back at the photos I took of my children wearing sweaters and wellies whilst enjoying their summer seaside vacation. I would love to go back again but I think my Texas blood could only tolerate it in the summer!
