The Sun Shines in Tenby

Saturday was spent partly with the family, I had lots of birthday presents to open, and partly in Tenby. I have never been before and it is a bit like a time capsule, no body has come up with the bright idea of ripping the heart out of it and building it up with slabs of concrete and acres of grey tinted glass.

The remains of the tower,a back drop to the statue of Prince Albert.

The ancient canons, a reminder of our history and the need to be alert to danger from the sea.

The remains of a once proud fort.

The wind was off the sea but a few hardy souls were on the beach.

Sugar Almond coloured houses in front of the Parish Church.

A quick lunch break for the driver and "conductor" of the Tourist Transport.

All in all a lovely afternoon out, we had a leisurely drive back, after enjoying an ice cream , Black Cherry for Michael and Coffee for me, very nice and only £2,50 for the two, and they were not small.

We went into the local Deli shop where there was a tasting of Balsamic Vinegars, Flavoured oils, Olives and bread. That was lunch taken care of, what we saved we spent on vinegar and dried chipotle chillies..

It is time to go for a walk round the lanes now, Ben is pacing and I have breakfast to walk off. Local cured bacon, free range eggs, local butter and toast.    TTFN    Pam

  1. Happy Birthday Pam x Sounds like you are having a wonderful time, make the most of the sunny weather, I have just been watching Countryfile and it looks about to change to more cool weather mid week. Your description of the breakfast is making my mouth water!!
