So, this glorious weather has stuck around for a few weeks now and it was only a matter of time before somebody came up with the ingenious idea of a beach party. Loading up a convoy of cars with plenty of food, drink and camping equipment a group of 9 of us headed towards Porthcawl, music blaring and screeching along to the radio at the top of our lungs. 

Apologies for the quality of some of the images, they were taken off my iPhone due to the fact that sand and expensive camera equipment do not mix...

Finding our perfect spot on the beach and pitching our tent it was down to serious business; the hunt for wood! Because lets face it, no beach party is complete without a bonfire to dance around. 

Once the sun had set the boys got down to business lighting the fire while the girls just sat around looking pretty...

They did a pretty good job too...

After eating, dancing and singing the night away, we all lay around the slowly dying campfire gazing up at the stars, looking forward to a day in the sun the following morning...  

All feeling slightly sore from sunburn we made the trip home laughing about the nights events and vowing to do it again soon! A truly magical weekend in the company of my closest friends.

  1. Your iPhone photos are perfect, and it looks like you've got an exceptional group of friends. What a glorious spot.Kind of like a scene from a "Gidget" or "Frankie and Annette" movie (but you'll probably have to do a search on those to have any idea what I'm talking about).

  2. Oh it sounds like you had an amazing time! Lovely photo's :D xx
