Enjoying the summer

Posted by
Philip (South Wales, United Kingdom) on 10 August 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Was in Mumbles (seaside resort in Swansea, South Wales) last week with my wife's sister and her children. Her son was in a good mood but who wouldn't be with an ice cream like this.

Nice to see a decent waffle cone in the UK.The standard UK Tastes like cardboard cone is always a dissapointment when I´m over(here in germany you get cones similar to that on this picture and very often home made on the premises) But stick a flake in for a 99 and you can´t beat it !! (no 99´s here :-( )

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Because most people are cheapskates!!! My mum has the cheap ones in Porthcawl because the decent ones are 20p more. I'm with you, they make the ice cream experience all the better.
