Where We Were

I'm back now from a delightful week staying in Tenby - and we explored some of the surrounding area too.

As some of you may know, this was not my first visit to Tenby - I've been there every year since I was nine and that's - - er - - quite a few years now. Over thirty. Okay, over forty, since you insist. Always to the same hotel, the wonderful Park Hotel with its great view of North Beach and Tenby Harbour and its friendly staff.

I have a lot of photos of course, but tonight I'll just post a few to give - I hope - the flavour of this lovely part of Pembrokeshire, South Wales.

You can click on any of the photos to enlarge them.

Tenby Harbour in evening sunlight:

The beautiful wide beach and sand dunes at Freshwater West:

North Beach, Tenby - always "my" beach since childhood - all other beaches have to work hard to match it, because of its scenery, clean sea, golden sand and safe swimming:

Here's a house that I've always fancied on Caldey Island, just three miles from Tenby, and the view is towards Tenby:

The view from Park Hotel:

and the same view at night with a full moon - it's dark I know (unsurprisingly) but if you click to enlarge it, it looks very pretty:

It's been a lovely week and many thanks to Silverback for his excellent company too. I don't usually publish photos of people on my blog, but for once I'm going to break that rule and I hope nobody minds: here are all the great people I was with:

So, from left to right: Olli, son-in-law Gareth, my mother Joan, husband Stephen and our friend Silverback.

Great photos, especially the one at night with full moon and the group photo.

So glad you explained the last photo. I thought the two guys flanking your mum were a couple of gold-digging gigolos she had generously allowed to be her escorts.

So when did Silverback become a "street soccer" player? And which team does he play for...Leeds United? Glad you had a lovely time down in Tenby. Now back to "REALITY"!
