Last Day in Wales

Again, this was written October 2nd, but it won't be posted until I get Internet access.

Today, our last day in Wales, we went down to the beach in Mumbles (as opposed to the beach in Swansea that we were at yesterday). Then, we walked along the footpaths on the cliffs. It's definitely some beautiful ocean front out here. Then, we walked along the pier.

I ate at a coffee shop with Brian, Mason, and a girl whose name I don't know. Brian and Mason are two of the guys I'm staying with at this host stay. We were all tired from all the activities we've had, so we stopped by a gift shop and them came back. It took a while for our "host mum" to drive in and meet us, as apparently, her washer had decided to stop working. It must have been a front-load, as she said when she opened it, all the water came out on the floor.

Brian, Samip, and I took a nap. Mason went for a walk. After that, we watched some Rugby before having dinner (fish, potatoes, carrots, and peas) and desert (pears, bananas, and ice cream). It was all very good.

After dinner, we each did our own thing (packing, reading, etc.) in our rooms for a while. Then, we went downstairs and played with Henry, Gill's grandson, which I guess makes him our "host nephew". Henry is 14 months and is here to visit today. He doesn't actually live here.

After that, we went back to doing our own thing. Mason is watching Miss Congeniality with Roy in the "lounge" (living room). Samip and Brian called home, but now I don't know what they're up to. I'm writing this. Later, we're going to give our gifts to the host family, and then it'll be about time for bed. We have to be up earlier tomorrow. The bus leaves at 9:00, meaning we have to be there at 8:45. It sounds like we may have to take two trips to get all four of us and our luggage the bus. European cars are very small.

Tomorrow I'll be in Oxford. It sounds like it'll be a busy orientation week, but I'm going to try to keep up with the blogging.
