Last year we went on holiday to golden sands in Towyn. It felt like ages in the car until we arrived, we stopped on the top of a big hill in a cafe for breakfast where the sheep were staying too. We stayed in a caravan that was really nice and had lots of things to do. My favorite part was the club house that had a swimming pool and music at the night time that my mum could dance to – it was quite funny and embarrassing.

We went on a day trip to Lladudno and i really liked the arcade at the end of the pier although it was a little bit scary but not as scary as the cable cars on our way down the great orm.We went on a speed boat which was really really good and extra fast – i held on really tight with my bright red lifejacket on. We had a lot of chips and ice cream. We took alot of picture when we went to walk up Snowdonia, my legs ached for the rest of the holiday.

We went to conwy too, to do some crabbing in the harbour – mum caught the biggest crab i have ever seen – it ate the bacon and then went back! The beach was really nice to fly my kite and the fair was really exciting.The only thing I wasn’t so sure about was all the long street names and places, but it was funny listening to mum trying to say them to me. I think I would like to live in a caravan when I am older, they are really great with no stairs! I cant wait to go back again!
