DID she say yes?

A group of friends have turned to the Evening Post to try to find out the answer to one of the most romantic riddles of the year.

Swansea hairdresser Lara Johnson was out for an early morning run along Rotherslade Bay, with pals Claire Parkin and Sam Ward-Jones, when they saw a man writing a message on the sand with pebbles.

Allowing curiosity to get the better of them the three friends approached and started chatting to the man.

It turned out he was preparing for the biggest question of his life.

Lara explained: "On Saturday morning, myself and two friends went for our early run, with the dogs, around the bay when we saw this guy collecting pebbles.

"He had already written Will when we first ran along the top of the beach and by the time we came back it read 'Will you marry me?'

"We were looking down on it from the cliff top and we started jumping up and down and cheering.

"He explained that he had set up a treasure hunt for his girlfriend, with lots of clues that would lead her to the beach, where he was going to pop the big question.

"The tide was on its way out so he had about five hours before it was swept away.

"We were so excited.

"It was a lovely to witness something so sweet, especially with the weather being so miserable of late, it really brought some sunshine into our day."

But now the friends are anxious to find out what the answer was.

Lara added: "I don't know his name or if he is a local guy, I think he must be.

"I would love to find out who they are and if she said yes or not.

"If she did say yes then I would like to offer to do her hair for her on the big day."
