Portmeirion - My 21st.


My Brother Sam's impression of the famous Seal photobomb...




So on Tuesday it was my 21st Birthday WOOOOO. 

We had a family day out to North Wales to one of my favourite places Portmeirion! You may have heard of the pottery by this name which is part of this (but actually made in Stoke like all the best is, hellooooo Emma Bridgewater!) I primarily know it for being where The Prisoner TV series was filmed and by the way if you haven't seen it I'd seriously recommend it ever so slightly mad, late 1960s at it's best. As a family we love the show which makes visiting Portmeirion even more wonderful though it has to be said I can't leave the gift shops without something to suit the theme!

My brother came up from Kent for a few days for my Birthday and as I haven't seen him since mid January it meant we didn't even argue while he was here, which had to be a world record surely?! The weather looked stormy but the rain held off and we were even greeted by sunshine on our drive home that evening, which is typical! I dressed for comfort more than high style points as we travelled for two and a half hours each way but as always it was certainly worth it! Each time we've visited Portmeirion we have found new spots and little buildings we've missed in the past. It's truly a fascinating place and the story of how it came to be is utterly interesting and well worth a google!

As I mentioned in an earlier post this is the start of more lifestyle posts to be up on A rose like this as I really enjoy taking photographs of the places I visit, gigs I go to and the people I've seen and I hope you like them!
