Every September thousands of Elvis Presley fans from around the U.K, and the world head to the Welsh seaside town of Porthcawl in South Wales. The last time I went to Porthcawl was a child on a seaside school trip. I don't remember it much, so for me it was interesting to go there again and look at it with grown up eyes, but this weekend was not about sand, sticker rocks and chips, today it was all about Elvis and as an Elvis Presley fan, D was super excited and eager to go.
Here are some selected photographs from this weekend.
I didn't come home with a mug, I came home with a novelty solar powered 'rock'n'rolling dancing Elvis for our car; and D picked up, not one, not two but three Elvis themed t-shirts.
The Elvis Presley Bagel which surprising was not found on the menu anywhere in Porthcawl.
Nor was The Graceland Cake: Strawberry, Banana and Peanut Butter Cake.
