Our Secret Beach {My Captured Moment #86}

Welcome back to My Captured Moment, a weekly link-up where I share my favourite ‘Captured Moments’ and invite you to do the same.


Over the past week and a half the girls and I have been in Wales, staying with my parents in Lampeter. I love bringing them back to Ceredigion, where I grew up and taking them to all the places I used to go to as a child.

When I think about the long summer days of my childhood, my mind instantly goes to our frequent visits to the local beaches and evening drives to the coast for fish and chips. The coastline of Ceredigion is dotted with gorgeous little beaches and they’ve not changed much since I was little, although they are now much more busy, with the increase in tourism.

However, there is one small beach that stands out to me as my favourite and even after all this time, is still pretty quiet and ‘tucked away’, almost like a local secret beach. This is the beach that I make sure we visit every year, and last week we made our annual visit on a warm Tuesday afternoon.

Here are just a few of my favourite shots from this nostalgic and special day…

Share your Moments

Your ‘My Captured Moment’ can be a single picture or a series of shots, new (taken this week) or old, with or without words. The idea is to simply share a moment in time you’ve captured on your camera and make sure it doesn’t go unseen. This could include vintage shots of your own childhood and beyond or a simple picture you’ve recently taken and want to ‘show off’.

How to Play Along

• Link up every Thursday to Sunday (ending at 11.00pm) • Add my badge (or link back to my website using #MyCapturedMoment) at the bottom of your post. • Share the love – try to comment on a few of the other posts. After all that’s what it’s all about.

Go Social

Tweet your posts to me @HeleddLavender using the hashtag #MyCapturedMoment and I’ll retweet. Hashtag your picture #MyCapturedMoment on Instagram (follow me @HeleddLavender) so we can share our pictures and hopefully get some new followers and likes.
