Treyarnon Bay means "the beach" to John's family. John spent many holiday's here from 5 -10 years and then several times later. His parents visited every year for 30 years.

I visited October 16, 2001 and returned in May 2009.      Click for more old pictures

As a 5 to 10 year old I used to make complex road systems and other sandworks on this beach with my friend Keith Gowing. I took pictures of children following the tradition 50 years on......
Then I couldn't resist making a small castle myself using an empty coffee cup as the "bucket"
