Tarry a while in Tenby

Little town of the fishes - Tenby


Tenby in welsh is Dinbych-y-pysgod, meaning little town of the fishes or little fortress of the fish. 

This delightful walled seaside town in Pembrokeshire is on the western side of Carmarthen Bay. 

During the Wars of the Roses Henry Tudor, the future King Henry VII of England, sheltered here before sailing into exile in 1471.


Ruth Livingstone, who is boldly walking along the coast of Britain, recently sheltered in of this wonderful part of Wales.  

As Ruth's  artist-in-residence I painted this modest celebration.
