Random Adventuring! #Whatevertheweather

We’ve had a mad year so far, and it’s been a really long time since we went on a little adventure. So, today we woke up, got dressed, ate and left the house in record time at around 9.40am (I know, we’re terrible ;)) and headed out to explore Llantwit Major.
Out into the windy sunshine we went, and at first the kiddibops moaned about being out, legs were described as ‘breaking’ and there were lots of stops and starts… It didn’t matter though. We headed out early, so we had plenty of time to wander. The first thing we found was a really interesting bug!

We were reminded by Molly to not touch it just in case, but how cool is it?! We have no idea what it is, so we are going to do a bit of research and hopefully find out. If you know what it is please let us know!
After this we wandered down a little path, but we were unsure as to where it went so we came back! Plus, I’d been stung a lot and my ankles were a bit ouchy!
We carried on wandering towards the beach, down lots of pavement-less roads, which was great because we were able to discuss road safety as well as play our #Agameadaychallenge. We decided to play a reverse ‘Who Am I?’ and we took it in turns to think of a person/character and have everyone else guess with yes/no answers. It was a lot of fun!
On our way we met lots of people and chatted to them, as well as spotting new and unknown walking areas, such as a large forest patch on the way to the beach. It was so much fun discovering things together. After an hour we decided to stop for a rest and a snack…
Once we’d refuelled, we carried on with our adventure. We found a little stream and had a lovely time palying in a large field very close to the beach.

Even the dog had a great time…

After this we were a bit hot, bothered and tired, so we decided to head home. We had a little pitstop on a bench and when we got home we made a new friend!

These two are awesome! They were giggling so much in the fields and playing crazy chase games, so this photo shows how tired they are I think!
Onto our new addition… when we got home Molly found a lovely caterpillar, Spikey, who we are hoping to take care of… we just need a bit more info about him before we proceed…
Check him out, he’s ace!

We had a lovely day adventuring in Llantwit Major and I can’t wait to do it again soon 🙂
 
Do you know any special places in Llantwit we could visit?
