In Tenby Hurrah!

Here I am, by the sea in Tenby on my Eee - - poetry!

We crossed the M62 motorway really rather early, having left the house at ten past six this morning. We were aiming for a great cafe, Caffi Beca, twenty miles from Tenby, for lunch, and indeed got there in time. It's 250 miles from Leeds to Tenby which is a long way on winding Welsh roads - but the scenery's glorious so that makes up for it.

I love rediscovering all the Welsh names for villages on the way down and today my two special favourites were Pontybodkin and Ffos y Ffin. Glorious!

The weather ignored the forecast, luckily, and we encountered a few showers on the way down but here in Tenby it's hot and the sun is shining. The hotel's outdoor pool is warm too - even Olli - who is very slim! - thought so. Though "warm" is a relative term and it's perhaps best to remember that I was brought up to swim in British seas in April, for example, so most pools feel like a warm bath to me.

So, having had a walk into the town and a swim, I feel I've earned my Park Hotel dinner. Well, that's my excuse, anyway. I'll write more tomorrow.

Oh to be beside the seaside! Cities are so not the place to be in high summer :(

Enjoy Wales! I had many happy holidays there as a child (I was also born there, but that's another story).
