Swansea may not seem the immediate holiday destination, but it has so much to offer rain or shine. Last year we visited for a couple of days and with it came so many learning opportunities for the boys. First up we went to the Gower and had a go at body boarding. I can't wait until the boys are bigger and I can enroll them in surf school. I had a go surfing at Oxwich before big man came along. We chose the half a day slot and we were shattered. I can confirm that I am no Patrick Swayze or Keanu Reeves on a surf board.
At Langland we went around the rock-pools, discovering seaweed and anenomes. Big man had his identification chart and was in his element poking around with a stick.
A short drive away you can explore the caves at the national showcase centre. Infact big man proved he had been to a cave at school the other day by writing that caves are dark and wet even though they have a roof!
So holidays these days aren't as relaxing as they used to be, but they are filled with leaning as well as lots of fun! You can follow Visit Wales on twitter and on Facebook
